Baker Donelson's Space Team is well-positioned within the space industry to draw upon our legal and policy experience and provide public policy and cybersecurity support to our clients.

Practice Overview

In the space industry, companies are experiencing the impact of rapid growth and technological advancement.

In today's interconnected world, the role of space activities has grown exponentially, becoming integral to our daily lives, economic prosperity, and national security. However, the existing domestics laws and regulations, as well as international treaties and agreements, governing space activities have failed to keep pace with the rapidly evolving challenges posed by the expansion of human activities in space. This industry is leveraging innovations and new technologies – in areas such as cybersecurity, telecommunications, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other applications – to scale operations. Along with increasing private investment in the industry, companies are trying to improve movement, operations, and communications in the space ecosystem.

We are well-positioned within this ever-changing, dynamic industry to draw upon our legal and policy experience and provide public policy and cybersecurity support to our clients. Baker Donelson's Space Team pulls upon experience from roles and responsibilities involving the U.S. Cyber Command; the National Security Agency; the Cyber National Mission Force; the White House National Security Council; the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation; and the Department of Transportation, among others.
