Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP (WBK) is pleased to announce that Chris Bair is joining the firm in the Washington, DC, office. Chris joins WBK after two years with the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) International Bureau Satellite Division where he served as an Attorney Advisor. In that role, Chris was heavily involved in every step of satellite policy — from conducting research on topics for proposals to drafting final rules and licensing documents for Commission-level items. Prior to his role with the FCC, Chris was a Research Associate for LMI Advisors where he researched a variety of topics in telecommunications regulation, including spectrum availability, foreign market access and equipment authorization.
A published author, Chris’s writing has appeared in The SciTech Lawyer‘s Fall 2015 edition — Asteroid Mining and Interpretative Declarations: A Path Toward Wider Applicability of the Liability Convention in the Future Space Industry. He also served as an Articles Editor for The George Washington University’s International Law Review. Chris received his J.D. cum laude from The George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC, and a B.A. magna cum laude from the University of Denver.
“We are excited to have a rising star like Chris join our team,” said Managing Partner Bryan Tramont. “His longstanding interest and work in the satellite industry will be a tremendous asset to the firm.”
