Communications Sector Practice: Telecom, Media and Satellite

Summit Ridge Group focuses exclusively on the communications sector, in particular, the telecom, media, and satellite industries. Our clients include investors, service providers, parties in dispute, and federal agencies. By sticking to our knitting, we are able to provide high-quality service to our clients with prompt turn-around time.  Our core areas of focus are:


Summit Ridge Group is deeply involved in telecom issues including wireless spectrum valuation and business valuation. Projects involve the valuation of spectrum frequently used by major carriers as well as “off-brand” spectrum for which business models are less clear and comparable transaction data is less available. Projects have ranged from litigation support, valuations for tax purposes to transaction due diligence.


Summit Ridge Group has worked on a variety of media sector projects and has been deeply involved in television broadcast incentive auction projects including authoring or co-authoring three law journal articles on the topic. We provide litigation support related to content pricing. We also advise broadcasters on expected auction proceeds from the Broadcast Incentive Auction. Currently, we are the leading consultant supporting broadcasters in obtaining reimbursement for the costs associated with the repacking process.

Satellite Communications

Our work in the satellite sector is well known. Summit Ridge Group president, J. Armand Musey, was a former top-ranked Wall Street satellite research analyst. We have completed many projects involving the FSS sector and orbital slot valuation. We have also worked on projects involving next-generation LEO projects and VSAT systems.
