With the days counting down to the 2016 US presidential election, much is at stake for the telecom, media, and tech (TMT) sectors. Please join TMT practice leader Andy Lipman for a complimentary pre-election industry overview in which he will explore the post-election legal and regulatory landscape given the various possible outcomes, the candidates’ positions, and the party platforms.

Andy will examine the likely scenarios that the industry will face and the consequences of the election results on the makeup of the US Congress, the federal courts, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the US Department of Justice, and other relevant government agencies. A Q&A session will follow.

FCC topics will include:

  • Competition policy and antitrust
  • Internet and net neutrality
  • Spectrum policy
  • Broadband deployment/adoption
  • Consumer privacy/data security
  • Media and spectrum ownership

CLE credit: CLE credit in CA, FL, IL, NJ (via reciprocity), NY, PA, TX, and VA is pending approval.
