Edgar Class Elected to Hispanic Bar Association of DC’s Board of Directors

January 29, 2013

Edgar Class, an attorney in Wiley Rein’s Communications Practice, was elected on January 24 to this year’s Board of Directors of the Hispanic Bar Association of the District of Columbia (HBA-DC). The association’s members include hundreds of lawyers practicing in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia.

Mr. Class, a member of Wiley Rein’s Diversity Committee, has chaired the HBA-DC’s Professional Development Committee since 2011, organizing panel discussions, workshops and other programs to help Hispanic attorneys succeed in their careers and advance their education. He is a former co-chair of the Federal Communications Bar Association’s (FCBA) Diversity Committee and currently co-chairs the FCBA committee responsible for overseeing publication of the Federal Communications Law Journal.

In May 2012, Mr. Class was featured in the “Member Spotlight” section of the HBA-DC’s newsletter—an honor for which only four individuals a year are chosen. Selection is based on “community involvement, professional development and leadership.”

At Wiley Rein, Mr. Class provides regulatory, business and transactional advice on matters concerning telecommunications services, spectrum auctions, licensing requirements, universal service support mechanisms, cable regulations and enforcement actions. He represents clients before the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration and the U.S. Congress.
