Who's Who Legal Data: Telecoms & Media

Walt Sapronov has represented enterprises, investors, carriers and service provider clients in telecoms transactions, regulation and privacy matters since the 1980s. He has been named in Georgia Super Lawyers and in previous editions of Who's Who Legal.

Sapronov & Associates, PC – with offices in Atlanta, Georgia and Washington, DC – represents clients in a wide variety of communications and information technology transactions, financing, M&A, bankruptcy, regulatory and privacy matters. The firm also represents clients in Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and state regulatory matters. Firm lawyers have extensive experience (creditor side) in telecom bankruptcies and distressed carrier transactions. The firm advises both strategic and financial investors in telecom finance transactions, with emphasis on deal protections for wireless and broadband investments.

The firm’s commercial practice includes negotiation and drafting of complex, highly specialised telecom, wireless and broadband infrastructure contracts. Among these are Distributed Antenna System (DAS) installation, operation and maintenance for stadium venues; fiber network (IRU) “build-out” and capacity lease transactions; and multi-state wireless (LTE/4G) deployment (cell site and “backhaul”); and large data centre contracts. With more than 35 years’ experience, Mr Sapronov has negotiated countless wireless, broadband, interconnection, and pole attachment contracts with every major telecom carrier in the US and with many abroad.

The firm's regulatory experience includes representation before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), numerous US public utility commissions throughout the US, and numerous other state and local governmental authorities. The firm’s privacy practice includes domestic and EU privacy compliance, as well as cross-border privacy issues involving the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
