Zach Rosenbaum joins DLA Piper’s Telecom Practice as principal focused on spectrum engineering and management

DLA Piper has added Zach Rosenbaum to the firm’s Telecom practice, part of the firm’s Regulatory and Government Affairs practice, as a principal in the Washington, DC office.


Rosenbaum joins from SES S.A., where he worked for more than 12 years, most recently as a vice president of Spectrum Management and Development. In that role, he was responsible for leading a team of engineers who managed and maintained the company’s global satellite constellation, in addition to managing relationships with the International Telecommunication Union as well as US and European regulatory authorities concerning spectrum and the introduction of new technologies.


Rosenbaum brings extensive engineering capabilities with respect to spectrum sharing techniques and the design and implementation of systems to comply with regulatory requirements. He also has substantial experience with interference modeling, including the use of Monte Carlo simulations and software development for coordination and interference resolution. Rosenbaum also played a leading role in the deployment of new technologies and sharing between terrestrial and satellite systems, with specific focus on coordinating between NGSO and GSO constellations.


“We are excited to have Zach join our Band 1 Telecom team as the future of the communications industry increasingly depends on developing engineering tools to enable access to more spectrum in the U.S. and around the world. This is what Zach has done and will be doing. He joins our Senior Engineers Tom Dombrowsky and Mike Lewis to create a world-class capability for our clients,” said Michael Senkowski, global co-chair of DLA Piper’s Telecom practice.
