Garvey Schubert Barer has announced the addition of Attorney Brad Deutsch to its DC office, where he will be a member of the Communications, Media and Information Technology practice group.
Deutsch’s practice will focus on broadcast station transactions and regulations before the Federal Communications Commission, where he previously served as Special Assistant to the Chief of the Mass Media Bureau and as a Supervisory Attorney. Brad also has extensive experience assisting broadcast clients with complex transactions, licensing applications and rulemaking proceedings, derived from his prior work experience in private practice with the law firm Hogan & Hartson LLP (now renamed Hogan Lovells US LLP).
Prior to joining the firm, Brad Deutsch served for eight years as Chief of Staff and Senior Legal Advisor to Commissioner Steven T. Walther at the Federal Election Commission, where he had previously served as Assistant General Counsel. During his tenure at the FEC, he advised Commissioner Walther, (who served as FEC Chairman in 2009 and as Vice Chairman in 2008), on all aspects of Campaign Finance Law and Administrative Law. At Garvey Schubert Barer, Brad Deutsch will provide strategic advice to candidates, political committees, corporations and trade associations in all areas of Federal and State Political and Election Law.
Said Deutsch: “I am thrilled to be joining the brilliant, cohesive and collegial team of attorneys at GSB. I look forward to assisting our clients as we navigate the unpredictable and all too often counter-intuitive road that has been paved by recent turbulent changes in the law.”
Brad received his law degree from Fordham University School of Law and his undergraduate degree from Brown University.
