Before Edwards Wildman

Ari began his career at a small communications and privacy law firm in Washington, DC where he advised start-up and established technology companies on privacy laws and wireless technology companies on FCC matters. During law school, Ari was a law clerk for Commissioner Robert M. McDowell and intern in the Wireline Competition Bureau of the FCC, where he assisted in the development of the National Broadband Plan and analyzed the FCC's authority to implement Open Internet rules. Ari was also an intern at the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, where he supported the Department of Commerce in drafting its “Green Paper,” “Privacy Policy and Innovation in the Internet Economy,” which formed the basis for the agency's multistakeholder proceedings to develop industry self-regulatory privacy codes. Prior to attending law school, Ari served on the transition team for Chancellor Michelle Rhee at the District of Columbia Public Schools.
