Tamar E. Finn

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP

Washington, DC, USA

Tamar Finn, a partner in Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP’s Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) practice, has over 15 years of experience representing clients on telecommunications, enhanced services and Internet regulatory issues before the courts, Federal Communications Commission, state public utility commissions, and Congress.

She regularly assists clients in the day-to-day management of incorporating regulatory compliance into their business.  For example, with respect to intercarrier compensation and interconnection issues, Tamar works closely with clients in developing and advocating regulatory policy; implementing the policy by negotiating, and if necessary litigating, agreements; and resolving any subsequent contract disputes through dispute resolution, litigation and/or comprehensives settlement negotiations. With respect to information services, Tamar counsels clients concerning regulatory classification and the benefits and drawbacks of such classification and also assists them in developing products to take advantage of regulatory classifications and to defend those classifications before state and federal agencies, the Congress and courts.

Tamar advises clients on all aspects of universal service, including contributions to the universal service fund (USF) and distributions from federal USF programs. For example, Tamar assists clients with developing basic regulatory USF compliance programs, comprehensively planning to manage and potentially reduce their contributions, prosecuting appeals before both the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) and the FCC, advocating policy changes, and defending companies under audits and investigations for possible violations of USF laws and regulations.

Tamar is also a frequent speaker in TMT’s webinar program, covering issues ranging from intercarrier compensation to universal service.
