Jessica has extensive experience in overseeing the regulatory aspects of major merger transactions, including preparing responses to interrogatory and document requests, complying with confidentiality protective orders, communicating with FCC staff and securing the approval of Team Telecom and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”).
