Washington, D.C., partner and chair of the Government and Regulatory Affairs group Laura Phillips has been invited once again to join the faculty of the Practising Law Institute’s (PLI) 36th Annual Institute on Telecommunications Policy & Regulation. The program, which will take place on December 6 and 7, is co-sponsored by the Federal Communications Bar Association.
Laura will co-moderate a new panel for this long-time event titled “Consumer Protection Developments in the Telecommunications Sector.” The panel will address recent developments concerning the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and robocalls, including litigation and FCC efforts; privacy and cybersecurity developments in the telecom sector; and FCC activity on accessibility issues. The panelists include senior legal and policy leaders from the US Chamber of Commerce, the FCC, and US Telecom. Laura will be joined by Mark Brennan, a partner at Hogan Lovells.
The Institute will provide an end-of-year review of the significant telecommunications developments of 2018 and look at legal challenges in store for 2019. It will address recent trends and critical developments in wireless and wireline telecommunications, broadband Internet, media, spectrum and privacy.
