Wes Wright is a partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. He focuses his practice on telecommunications compliance and enforcement matters.

Mr. Wright regularly counsels corporate clients on compliance matters before the FCC and state public utilities commissions. He counsels clients on compliance with rules related to telecommunications service provider regulations, state tariff requirements, private wireless licensing, 911 reliability and call handling, customer proprietary network information (CPNI), the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA), and other related obligations. He is a recognized expert on the FCC’s wireless spectrum rules. He recently has given several compliance-related seminars on a host of topics, including: the FCC’s 911 Reliability Rules, 911 Wireless Location Accuracy, Spectrum Licensing and Enforcement, Communications Tower Compliance Obligations and the FCC’s New Citizens Broadband Radio Service.

Mr. Wright also represents trade associations and corporate clients on policy matters before the FCC. He has advocated policy positions before the FCC on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Connect America Fund (CAF), municipal broadband preemption and many wireless spectrum rulemaking proceedings.

Mr. Wright also defends clients in FCC enforcement actions. He assists clients with all aspects of an FCC enforcement investigation. Mr. Wright has represented clients responding to an initial Letter of Inquiry (LOI) and guides them through the entire enforcement process. He has successfully convinced the FCC not to pursue enforcement actions for alleged rule violations and has negotiated settlements with the Commission that involve a reduced fine and no admission of wrongdoing.

Prior to rejoining Keller and Heckman in 2014, Mr. Wright worked as an in-house attorney for a telecommunications company where he advised the company’s subsidiaries on federal and state regulations governing the 9-1-1 industry, VoIP requirements, and other telecommunications compliance matters of interest.
