LB3 is the premier boutique law firm dedicated to counseling companies on telecommunications and information technology matters. We serve as a trusted advisor to our clients, structuring and negotiating transactions for network services, outsourcing, managed services, software and hardware acquisitions, cloud computing, and other complex technology service arrangements. As regulatory counselors, LB3 helps enterprise customers resolve high stakes disputes with their carriers and public and private enterprise users to navigate successfully the challenges and nuances of the FCC regulatory environment.
LB3 was one of the first law firms to enter the highly complex area of information and communications technology law. As technology advances and diversifies, our firm remains at the forefront of its field-evolving negotiation strategies and contract structures that help our clients find the right solutions to their most difficult challenges. We were involved in the earliest custom enterprise telecommunications contracts and multi-tower IT outsourcings and have represented many of the most demanding enterprise customers in support of their IT and network infrastructure outsourcing, managed services, and other complex technology transactions. LB3 was also among the first firms to represent the large user community in negotiations for commercially offered wireless technologies and IoT solutions.
LB3’s lawyers are uniquely qualified to handle our clients’ most complex transactions and regulatory challenges. With experience spanning the wide spectrum of information and communication technologies, managed services, outsourcing and cloud computing, we are well equipped to assist our clients in successfully negotiating and closing sophisticated transactions, including new technologies and service arrangements of first impression.
Additionally, our work before the FCC has given us a strong understanding of the changing regulatory environment-including telecommunications taxes and fees-and the best ways to protect and advance the interests of enterprise customers and technology companies before the agency.
LB3 is dedicated to advising purchasers of information and communications technology services. Because we work exclusively on the buyer’s side of IT and telecommunications transactions, we represent our clients free from any divided loyalties or conflicts of interests. Our pure end-user representation ensures that we always approach the market in general, and our clients’ negotiations in particular, from the perspective of the end user, not the provider.
At LB3, we staff our projects efficiently with experienced lawyers who provide our clients cost-effective solutions to their complex problems. We also take a flexible approach to legal fees, offering both traditional and innovative fee structures designed to meet the individual needs and demands of our clients.
With decades of experience representing some of the most sophisticated purchasers of corporate telecommunications and IT service, we not only know the law, we understand our clients’ business and technology needs. As a result, we are able to help advance our clients’ business objectives, protect their legal interests and preserve the value of their negotiated deals.
