Our roots go back to the early 1920s in the District of Columbia to the law offices of Daniel J. Dunning. Borsari & Paxson still represents clients today from the 1930s and 1940s, although the original general practice of the firm has evolved to a specialty in communications and commercial law. The firm now represents radio, television, telephone, cable, wireless, and other communications clients before the Federal Communications Commission, the courts, and other administrative agencies. The firm has prepared numerous position papers and reports assessing new technologies.
The following is some additional information about the firm that you might find useful:
We encourage our clients to stop by and see us when they are in Washington.
Internal Record keeping Procedures
All documents filed with the government agencies and courts are logged, as are all documents coming into the office via mail, fax, or delivery service. We also log (not record) all incoming telephone calls, and outgoing faxes, and we maintain computerized deadline lists.
We travel frequently. We expect to be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses and we do not charge a per diem. We are willing to work with clients in order to reduce the cost as much as possible, such as by traveling over a Saturday night.
We realize that the cost of legal services can be high, and that responsible clients will seek to manage legal costs just like any other expense. We are willing to work with you to reduce those costs, consistent with our professional obligations. We will work with your local or in-house counsel, have other parties prepare initial drafts, and we will use paralegals where possible.
We distribute from time to time an all-client letter that contains information about the industry, deadlines, changes in the law and items of general interest. We appreciate your comments and suggestions. Our letter is not intended as a substitute for the trade press, and all clients are urged to regularly consult a number of different sources. Occasionally included with the letter will be more detailed and comprehensive memos on specific topics. Not everyone will receive the detailed memos. If you see a reference to a more detailed memo that you would like, please ask us for one. These memos are complimentary and we would be happy to send them to anyone who requests them. Including non-clients. The memos are not copyrighted. We ask only that the source remain on the document if you copy the memo for someone else.
Our Internet e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions concerning any of the material that we have given you, please call us.
