Wilkommen, Bienvenu, Welcome!

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth is pleased to announce that, come September, Keenan Adamchak will be joining us as an associate. Although a relatively recent arrival to the bar – he snagged his J.D. from George Washington University Law School in 2014 – Keenan has been a presence on the communications law scene for a lot longer than that. He served as a paralegal with a communications firm in 2007 (right after he graduated from William and Mary with a B.A. in history and government) and during his law school stint he clerked not only at a couple more firms, but also in the office of then Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn.

Wait, there’s more. He was on the editorial staff of the Federal Communication Law Journal while at G.W. and he copped the award for Best Brief in the 2014 National Telecommunications Moot Court Competition! He’s also the author of an article featured in the most recent issue of the FCLJ. (Title: “Confusion Uncertainty and Fear: How the FCC’s Unchecked Destruction of the Contamination Theory through Adjudications is Harming Carriers, Competition, Consumers and Investment”; he’ll be happy to autograph a copy if you send it to him.)

Suffice it to say that Keenan is not unfamiliar with communications law.

And he fits into the practice in at least one other way: he golfs. (“Avidly”, he says – but he’s still looking to break 90.) Back in the day he competed on the National Geography Bee circuit; nowadays, though, he just travels, with some skiing on the side.

Keenan lives in Washington with his wife, Catherine.
