We settled a critical for our Client’s business situation with telecommunication licenses
Our firm was addressed by a Client who needed to obtain a license for provision of fixed telephony services with the right of maintenance and operations with telecommunication networks (up to 1000 numbers). Also he requested to renew the permits for numbering resource allocation and appropriation of national identification codes for fixed telephony networks (code for the automatic telephone switch).
The difficulties arose from the fact that the Client had already had a license to provide telephone services previously but it had been cancelled by the decision of the National Commission for the State Regulation of Communications and Informatization after a breach of licensing terms (while changing a legal address the Client forgot that it is required to transfer the changes into the existing license within 10 days).
When the Client addressed our firm the requirements for renewing numbering resource permits had not been followed as well (documents on renewing of permits were not filed by our Client during the very first request for a new license).
When these facts were found out by the National Commission for the State Regulation of Communications and Informatization it brought up the issue of cancellation of permits for numbering resource allocation and appropriation of national identification codes for fixed telephony networks. Commission meeting was scheduled in two weeks.
In case of permits cancellation the Client would not only stop his business activities for at least three months due to the absence of permits and spend not less than 40 thousand UAH for state duty payments for issuance of new permits but also very likely would lose the entire business because removed codes for fixed telephony networks could be appropriated by other companies.
Our legal experts immediately filed a request for the license obtainment and the requests for renewal of permits for numbering resource allocation and appropriation of national identification codes for fixed telephony networks. After analysis of the regulatory framework and proper legal representation of Client at meetings of the National Commission for the State Regulation of Communications and Informatization we were initially able to postpone a meeting on permits cancellation and as a result during the consideration of permits cancellation we could persuade the commission to decide on their renewing despite serious violations of regulations committed by the Client.
As a result of our work the Client faced no serious consequences of his violations. Later on law firm "Pravova Dopomoga" obtained the status of the Client’s legal advisor.
