Chérie R. Kiser heads Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP's communications practice group and is the managing partner of Cahill’s Washington, D.C. office.

For nearly 30 years, Chérie has been at the legal forefront of the dramatic growth and technological innovation that has taken place in the voice, video, Internet, and data communications markets. She advises her clients, which range from tech start-ups to leading global communications and Internet companies, on all aspects of their telecommunications, broadband, and wireless market entry and growth strategies. Her practice has been devoted to guiding companies through the regulatory and legal shoals surrounding traditional telephone, media, wireless, and cable service issues, as well as cutting-edge technologies such as VoIP, Telepresence, Internet of Things, Cloud-based services, and broadband deployment.

Chérie is counsel to clients on a broad spectrum of issues before the Federal Communications Commission, Congress, state legislatures, state Attorneys General offices, and state regulatory agencies. She represents clients in complex litigation involving regulatory, contract, and tax issues in state and federal courts across the country. She also acts as corporate regulatory counsel in connection with initial public offerings, mergers and acquisitions, debt issuances and financings, and other corporate transactions.

Earlier in her career, Chérie was a Senior Regulatory Attorney for Sprint Communications Company.
