WASHINGTON – The Technology Policy Institute (TPI) is pleased to announce that Bryan Tramont, Managing Partner at the law firm of Wilkinson Barker Knauer (WBK), has joined TPI’s Board of Directors. He was elected to the role by a unanimous board vote in December.
As managing partner, Tramont has been named repeatedly as one of the nation’s top telecommunications attorneys in US News–Best Lawyers, Chambers, Legal 500, and Super Lawyers..Prior to joining WBK, Tramont served as chief of staff to former FCC Chairman Michael Powell, as well as senior legal advisor to Chairman Powell and two other FCC commissioners. Bryan also serves on the adjunct law faculty at the University of Colorado and Catholic University of America.
“We are delighted to have Bryan Tramont on our board,” said TPI President and Senior Fellow Scott Wallsten. “Very few people are as accomplished and knowledgeable on spectrum and all manner of telecommunications and tech policies as Bryan—and fewer still are as liked and respected.
“He is also a man ahead of his time, having been named Lawyer of the Year in the 2020 edition of Best Lawyers in America in 2019,” Wallsten quipped.
Tramont says he is pleased to be chosen and looks forward to helping TPI enjoy further success and growth while maintaining its reputation for high-quality, scholarly works that inform the policymaking process.
“From its expert, data-driven scholarship to its amazing annual Aspen Forum, I have long been a fan of TPI and Scott’s leadership,” Tramont said. “They are unique and highly respected by those in the know. My goal is to help them continue on their smart growth path while remaining true to their roots.”
