Welcome to The CommLaw Group
Our one-of-a-kind “Full Spectrum” professional service platform allows our communications and information technology law specialists to expertly guide your business at every turn.
Marashlian & Donahue – The CommLaw Group - is a full service law firm located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area catering to businesses operating in and around the dynamic and diverse communications, information technology and "cloud computing" industries. Experienced in virtually all aspects of federal and state laws and regulation affecting the telecommunications, information services, Software as a Service (“SaaS”) and broadcast media industries, The CommLaw Group is the “go to” law firm for businesses ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 corporations from around the globe and was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal as one of the Capital Region's Premier Law Firms. In an unprecedented era of change in the legal profession, The CommLaw Group is also well-recognized as an innovator and thought leader -- The Lawyer Who Connected The Dots A Decade Before Anyone Else.
Communications services, information technologies and the non-traditional business methods used to bring services and products to the marketplace continue to progress at an unprecedented pace. This evolution is occurring, in many ways, due to the Internet, broadband networks and the unbridled imagination of the entrepreneurial businesses we represent. The laws, regulations and policies forged in the last century, and the government agencies tasked with enforcement, have struggled to maintain pace with these dramatic changes, leaving uncertainty in their wake. Businesses operating in this rapidly changing landscape demand specialized counsel. The CommLaw Group is unique among its peers, offering clients a scope of capabilities rarely found in boutique law firms. More than anything else, our ability to turn uncertainty into confidence is what makes us stand out.
Our firm represents businesses primarily engaged in the vibrant communications and information technologies industries. And because we recognize that "communications" encompasses more than just the technology of “talk,” but also covers the universe of visual communications and brand identity, we also boast an active Intellectual Property practice serving the trademark, copyright and design patent needs of our diverse client base.
The CommLaw Group is synonymous with “communications” in any form. With decades of experience before the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC"), the Patent and Trademark Office ("PTO"), Federal Trade Commission ("FTC"), state telecommunications regulatory agencies, attorneys general, and state and federal civil and tax courts, the depth and scope of our capabilities distinguishes our firm. Our attorneys fully know the industry and are proud to share their business acumen when advising clients on the financial, operational, and regulatory issues that allow companies to innovate and thrive. And our affiliated consultant firm, The Commpliance Group, is available to fulfill the Full Spectrum of professionally managed regulatory compliance solutions.
The CommLaw Group helps our clients meet industry regulations and protect their company’s reputation and brand. We pride ourselves on our expertise in communications and technology law; after all, if we weren’t experts in Communications, we wouldn’t be called The CommLaw Group.
