Glenn Stover represents and counsels clients in obtaining certification to provide telecommunications services before the 50 state utility regulatory commissions, in complying with federal regulatory rules and policies, and in advocating for clients in rulemakings and disputed cases before federal and state regulators. Mr. Stover was the author of the successful initial round of intrastate access charge complaints against the Bell Operating Companies filed in 1984 and 1985 by AT&T. More recently, he successfully negotiated and arbitrated both of the Interconnection Agreements between AT&T and the Pacific Bell Telephone Company in California, under the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Mr. Stover has also successfully litigated on behalf of AT&T in both state and federal court, regarding both commercial and regulatory disputes. He is especially adept at assisting in the management of new telecom carriers' relations with incumbent local exchange carriers and with state and federal regulators.
Mr. Stover is also an experienced antitrust advisor, with a deep understanding of the economics of the telecommunications industry, the effects of competition policy on that industry and, in general, of the economic aspects of trade regulation.
Mr. Stover is licensed to practice law in the State of California and the Commonwealth of
Virginia; he is admitted to the United States District Courts for the Northern District of
California, the Eastern District of Virginia, and the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, to the
