Agreements, Negotiations and Arbitration

There are myriad contracts that companies need to run their businesses from regulated interconnection to general business agreements for purchasing products. Companies need to have clear definitions of the responsibilities, liabilities and definition of the services provided. Contracts protect your interests with customers, vendors and suppliers. JSI works with clients to document their business transactions in a manner that is enforceable and compliant with FCC regulations as they add deregulated services, partner with new companies and assert their rights. JSI has templates for many of the common services and can develop customized agreements. JSI can negotiate, help implement, and help with enforcement of agreement provisions throughout the service term. We have the experience and expertise to help you negotiate the following:

  • Interconnection Agreements (for both your ILEC and CLEC with CLECs, IXC, wireless, and VoIP carriers)
  • Inter-Company Agreements
  • Ethernet Agreements
  • End-User Agreements
  • Wholesale VoIP Agreements
  • Pole & Conduit Agreements
  • Programming Agreements
  • Fiber & Facilities Leases
  • Partnership Agreements

  • Service Level Agreements

What Clients Say

For good reason – Our company has been a JSI client for many years and we use a number of their services. The staff that completes our cost study has been great and it doesn’t stop there. On several occasions while at our location working on the study, Brian Sullivan and Mikki Minnie Milton have taken the time to provide industry updates to our Board of Directors in a special meeting.
