“We congratulate Michael for the manner in which he has distinguished himself and for his contributions to the success of the firm. We are very pleased to welcome him as a Partner in recognition of his dedication and achievements. As regulators and policymakers nationwide continue struggling to apply the rules of yesterday to the communications services and applications of tomorrow and also use their predictive judgment to define new rules to govern the dynamic and unpredictable industry we serve, we foresee an increase in regulatory activity and additional demand for the firm’s risk-management and FCC advocacy services during 2012. Michael’s appointment illustrates the firm’s commitment to continued growth and development,” stated Managing Partner Jonathan Marashlian.

Mr. Donahue is a graduate of the University of Southern California and received his Juris Doctorate, cum laude, from the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University. Mr. Donahue counsels clients in a variety of transactional, operational, regulatory and public policy matters. Through his unique combination of in-house and outside counsel experiences serving some of the nation’s top communications service providers, Mr. Donahue has developed a proven record for delivering strategically sound, pragmatic management and proactive strategies for business clients.

Mr. Donahue joined The CommLaw Group in 2008 and has leveraged his deep knowledge and understanding of a broad range of federal and state legal and regulatory issues to serve our firm’s clients.
