WBK Welcomes Another New Attorney


The law firm widely known as the home for respected communications law attorney David Oxenford is welcoming its second new lawyer in a week.

Joining Wilkinson Barker Knauer (WBK) after spending two years in the FCC’s International Bureau Satellite Division as an attorney advisor is Chris Bair.

To little surprise, Bair will work out of the Washington, D.C.

At the FCC, Bair 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.

Before joining the FCC, Bair 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.

“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.”

Bair will be located in the Washington, D.C., office and can be reached at [email protected].
