Law Seminars International Presents: Fourth Annual Advanced Conference on

The New Wireless Ecosystem
Legal and business updates for everyone involved in wireless services

November 5 & 6, 2012
John Davis Conference Center in Seattle, WA

Who Should Attend

Attorneys, industry executives, regulatory and governmental officials and others involved with new wireless and mobile communication services and the multiplicity of uses for licensed and unlicensed spectrum

Why You Should Attend

The wireless ecosystem now offers customers a full range of communications and information services, ranging from voice and messaging to internet browsing, video, specialized content, location-based applications, and mobile wallets.

Every day new legal and regulatory issues arise from the continuing proliferation of devices and services. Attorneys working with clients in the wireless industry need to understand how spectrum is being used and acquired, how to navigate IP claims, how to negotiate deals between applications developers, carriers and device manufacturers, and how to address consumer and user concerns such as consumer protection and issues of privacy and security.

This is your chance to interact with and learn from transactional, litigation, and regulatory lawyers, as well as investment bankers, investors and industry executives and consultants, as they address the legal, business and regulatory issues of this rapidly expanding industry.
