Fish’s clients benefit from our knowledge of the space and satellite industries, as well as our legal training and skills in this area. Many of our attorneys worked in companies and government agencies in the aerospace sector before entering private practice.

Our unique backgrounds give us the intimate legal and technical expertise needed to get the job done, and clients commend us on and benefit from our highly efficient and effective cross-functional approach.

Our services include advising clients on contracts, risk management and insurance, legislative and policy matters, and corporate and finance issues. We also have substantial experience representing clients in satellite matters before the FCC.

Satellites and ground stations

Fish works with all types of satellite systems – voice, data, video, direct broadcast, global positioning, and remote sensing. We routinely assist our satellite clients with matters arising before the FCC, the NTIA, NOAA, and international regulatory bodies such as the ITU.

Our satellite and ground station services include the following:

  • Obtaining licenses from the FCC for both the space and ground segments of a system
  • Advising on the international frequency coordination process at the ITU
  • Coordinating with the NTIA on spectrum issues
  • Addressing legislative and policy issues that affect a client’s business
  • Aiding with satellite procurement contracts, transponder sales, and lease agreements
  • Drafting and negotiating of satellite in-orbit insurance contracts and processing claims under those contracts

Space launch services

Fish advises US launch services providers on obtaining FAA licenses and authorizations that permit them to perform launches in the United States or abroad. We ensure that clients comply with the FAA’s rules under the Commercial Space Launch Act, most notably the requirements to demonstrate financial responsibility and comply with strict safety regulations at US launch bases.

Our space launch services include the following:

  • Representing clients before federal agencies that have an interest in launch activities, including NASA and the US Air Force
  • Advising clients on the rights and obligations set forth in international space law treaties
  • Drafting and negotiating launch services agreements, launch insurance contracts (first- and third-party liability), and legislative and policy issues
