Tom Moorman’s primary area of practice is the representation of a variety of telecommunications clients before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and a number of state regulatory commissions. He represents incumbent telephone companies, competitive local exchange carriers, and interexchange carriers. Tom has been involved in a number of acquisitions providing both federal and state regulatory assistance, legal and public policy proceedings regarding issues associated with federal and state Universal Service, exchange access and recovery including those arising from the implementation of the aftermath of the FCC's 2011 USF/ICC Transformation Order. Tom also continues his work associated with implementation of the Telecommunications Act of 1996's interconnection framework - agreement negotiations and arbitration - as well as the implementation issues associated with such agreements.
