Wireless Broadband and Telecommunications Law

Sands Anderson PC's Virginia and North Carolina lawyers' expertise in wireless broadband service and telecommunications law derives from their experience forming and representing Wireless Service Authorities and other telecommunications-related entities.

Our attorneys are frequently serving as legal advisors in the forming and financing of wireless broadband and telecommunications providers, particularly in applications for federal stimulus funding.  Sands Anderson's lawyers are approved for representing localities in loans from state agencies and federal agencies such as the USDA and are included in the Bond Buyer's Municipal Marketplace list of municipal bond counsel, commonly known as "nationally recognized bond counsel."

Our experience with wireless broadband and telecommunication authorities and our involvement as local attorney or bond counsel for a number of political subdivisions across Virginia and North Carolina gives us a unique knowledge of the day-to-day concerns of Wireless Service Authorities and the way in which financings can affect their operations.  We have been involved in over 1000 bond issues totaling more than $3 billion.  We have also rendered counsel opinions in applications for federal stimulus financings and general obligation bonds and in specialized financings involving lease purchase, moral obligation and economic development issues.
