Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth is pleased to announce the addition of two new lawyers to its slate of telecom practitioners: James Troup and Tony Lee. They come to us most recently from the Venable law firm in Washington, where they practiced together as partners in the communications section for six years. This represents something of a homecoming for Jamie, since he actually began his career at FHH in the mid-’80s.           

Jamie and Tony’s primary focus has been on the matrix of issues affecting independent local exchange carriers, including federal regulatory issues, wireless offerings, tariffs, access charges, ancillary service offerings, transactions, and related litigation. They currently work with a large network of ILECs in Iowa and other states. They are also experienced in handling large enterprise telecommunications contracts and complex mergers.
