William Mosca, Jr. concentrates his practice primarily in the areas of energy, public utility and telecommunications law. Bill is a responsive, client-focused professional and a valued advisor to senior and middle management in a wide variety of business matters. A seasoned and creative counselor and litigator, Bill has advocated successfully before administrative and judicial bodies, defended and prosecuted complex multi-party litigation, and negotiated many types of commercial agreements.
Bill’s philosophy is straightforward: analyze any challenge presented, work with the client to determine the desired outcome, and obtain that goal in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. If an issue can be resolved by correspondence, a phone call or a meeting, then it will be concluded quickly. If a lawsuit can be resolved by an immediate motion to dismiss, then that motion will be filed without further expenses of discovery and trial. The client’s objectives are paramount and will be pursued efficiently, effectively and without delay.
