The Firm provides legal services to all major wireless telecommunications carriers in connection with leasing, zoning and litigation matters. We secure zoning and environmental permits and approvals for national wireless carriers, AM radio, low latency microwave networks, satellite dish and other antenna facilities in New York and New Jersey. The firm regularly represents these companies in state and federal court to reverse variance denials, defend application approvals or challenge overly burdensome regulations.

The representation of our telecommunications clients requires extensive knowledge of the technical requirements for these communications systems and networks, combined with a command of the legal framework for the approval of such facilities. One of the Firm’s principals, Greg Meese, has written extensively on the zoning of telecommunications facilities. His work has appeared in the national zoning treatise published by Matthew Bender & Company, titled Zoning and Land Use Control. He has also lectured on telecommunications issues, was the Special Editor of the June 1999 telecommunications issue of New Jersey Lawyer Magazine. Mr. Meese is also the Editor of the Land Use Citator, a compendium of laws, regulations and judicial decisions that impact real estate development which is published annually by the New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education.

Our commercial leasing attorneys negotiate and prepare leases for individual communications sites as well as master agreements covering numerous installations. Our real estate and land use attorneys perform comprehensive zoning analyses in order to secure government approvals for proposed network facilities and review title and work to remedy any title, environmental or regulatory issues that may appear in connection with the development of the proposed site. Once the lease is negotiated, we prepare and process site plan and variance applications to obtain the governmental approvals necessary for the constructions of individual facilities. Our attorneys coordinate the team of experts necessary to secure such approvals and regularly appear throughout New Jersey and southern New York on behalf of these clients.
