Vantage Point Solutions is pleased to announce the hiring of Mikaela Burma, JD, who has joined the Vantage Point team as Manager of Legal and Regulatory. Burma assumed her duties March 18, assisting VPS telecom and broadband clients with regulatory and legal matters.
“Mikaela has great legal skills in contract drafting and review, negotiations, great regulatory and research skills and has managed complex cases,” said Doug Eidahl, JD, Vice President of Legal and Regulatory. “We are very happy to have her on board.”
Kristy Szabo, Director of Consulting, agrees. “She is a great addition to the Vantage Point legal team and is ready to assist Vantage Point’s clients with regulatory and legal questions, as well as acquisitions, carrier disputes and FCC comments.”
Burma brings a variety of legal experience to Vantage Point, having previously served as a judicial law clerk and as a financial crimes specialist. Most recently, she served as a Claims Counsel/Specialist for CNA Surety.
Burma works alongside two additional full-time licensed attorneys in Vantage Point’s growing and leading Consulting department. Together, these three attorneys provide a great depth of legal expertise for the increasingly complex and competitive business environments in which VPS’ clients operate. In addition to legal guidance, Vantage Point’s Consulting team is particularly known for it’s strategic, financial, regulatory, and operational expertise in advising clients. In fact, in 2018 the team led clients to securing over $165 million in the Connect America Fund Auction 903 (“CAF II Auction”).
