Levine, Blaszak, Block & Boothby, LLP (LB3) is dedicated to doing one thing very well—representing enterprise users in communications and information technology matters.
LB3's lawyers have over 250 years of collective experience in communications and technology law.
Since it was founded in 1993, LB3 has been guiding its clients through the maze of legal and regulatory issues that stand between large buyers and world-class contracts or favorable outcomes from regulators and courts.
We pioneered the representation of end users in negotiating custom telecommunication service contracts, and are now at the forefront of representing many of the world's largest companies in connection with their adoption and use of new information and communications technologies, including software, hardware and integrated business process solutions. Partnering with the consultants of our affiliate TC2 adds another dimension to our services by bringing financial and technical expertise to bear on our clients’ efforts to secure leading edge communications and information technology contracts.
Complementing its transactional work, LB3 is also the principal representative of large end users and IT companies before the FCC, and is the first choice of large end users who need assistance in disputes with vendors.
Our Approach to Practicing Law
LB3 is a true rarity among the law firms whose practice is centered on serving Fortune 100 and equivalent clients.
Our 12 lawyers (8 of them partners) have no secretaries, ‘partner’ offices, or oriental rugs. True to our motto (“No Sniveling”) we bring to every matter a no-nonsense, business-focused approach that focuses relentlessly on solving the problem at hand. We don’t impose one-size-fits-all contract templates, recycle cookie-cutter processes without regard to client needs, or train inexperienced associates at client expense. Instead, we combine lean staffing and extensive experience with competitive fees to deliver superior results and unparalleled value.
We are Nationally Ranked as a Top-Tier Law Firm
For the fifth year in a row, U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” has ranked Levine, Blaszak, Block & Boothby, LLP, Tier 1 in Communications Law both nationally and in Washington, DC. Of the 19 national Tier 1 Communications Law firms, we are the only one that specializes in representing large users.
The surveys evaluated firms across the United States using a wide range of objective data as well as individual assessments from more than 6,000 clients (including every Fortune 100 company and more than 500 of the Fortune 1000), and nearly 9,000 lawyers in private practice. A list of the law firms that received rankings can be found at www.usnews.com/bestlawfirms; the national first-tier rankings were also featured in a print issue of U.S. News & World Report.
Most of the other firms in the first tier of Communications Law have hundreds of lawyers; none (except for LB3) are dedicated to the representation of large users. We appreciate the recognition, and are enormously grateful to the clients who have brought us to this point.
It wasn’t a fluke. Three LB3 partners are among the communications lawyers listed in Washington DC Super Lawyers; the only firm with more is twenty times our size. More than a third of our lawyers are rated AV by Martindale. And we have been recognized as among the leading attorneys in our field by Chambers & Partners, Lawdragon, and a variety of other lawyer rating entities.
