Zachem and Block make it look effortless. But Block does double duty focusing on corporate governance and intellectual property issues while also serving as the company’s lead in-house attorney for mergers, acquisitions and financings. Meanwhile, the recently promoted Zachem ensures Comcast complies with federal and state regulatory and legislative requirements. In partnering with NCTA and other MSOs, Zachem has helped advance the cable agenda on issues like net neutrality, broadband adoption, 5G and privacy, and is prepared to face whatever regulatory challenges may arise.
