David Carter began his career as part of an Am-Law 100 commercial litigation practice before specializing in telecommunications litigation as a member of one of the nation’s leading telecommunications law practices in Washington, D.C. He is a co-founder of Innovista Law and the TCPA Defense Force.
David has counseled many clients on strategies for remaining compliant with the TCPA and reducing the costs and risk of litigation. He has aided clients, many of whom do not regularly conduct business before the Federal Communications Commission, on strategies for effectively engaging with the FCC to seek clarification regarding how existing law impacts service offerings and mobile engagement activities.
Drawing on his experience as an adjunct faculty member and frequent guest lecturer at several universities, David has led the development of the TCPA Defense Force’s training module, which is designed to allow clients to inform front-line employees about the importance of honoring consumer opt-out requests as part of a company-wide TCPA compliance strategy.
Though much of David’s work is focused on helping clients avoid the courtroom, his experience translating complex regulatory regimes and technological details is uniquely helpful when it comes to defending class action cases filed pursuant to the TCPA. He has represented both closely held and publicly traded companies facing TCPA claims with potential liability in excess of $500 million.
