Thomas J. (Tom) Dougherty, Jr., has returned to Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth after a 15-year hiatus during which he practiced in the communications, transactions and outsourcing teams of Kilpatrick Stockton and Gardner, Carton & Douglas. A communications law veteran with more than 25 years’ experience, Tom may not have done it all, but he’s done most of it. Secondary market licenses? He’s negotiated many, including EAS lease agreements for both EBS licensees and Sprint Nextel. Buying and selling all manner of communications properties? Done that, too, often using tax-minimizing structures. Franchise and telecom right-of-way agreements on the cable side? Sure enough. On the telecom side, he’s represented both carriers and enterprise users in the procurement of telecommunications services and associated products. And Tom has also represented companies in sophisticated outsourcing and technology procurement transactions.

Tom is a Denison University graduate. He received his law degree from Catholic University, where he served on the editorial board of the law review.

FHH welcomes Tom back!
