Jim Baller

President
Baller Stokes & Lide, PC

 

Baller represents clients in a broad range of communications matters nationally and in more than 35 states. He was the founder and president of the US Broadband Coalition, a consortium of more than 160 organizations that helped build a national consensus on the need for a comprehensive national broadband strategy and recommended the framework reflected in the FCC’s National Broadband Plan. He also worked with Google on its Fiber for Communities initiative.

In 2001, NATOA designated him Member of the Year and in 2007 made him its first Community Broadband Visionary of the Year for “almost single-handedly putting the need for a national broadband strategy to the forefront of public consciousness.” In 2012, Baller received the FFTH Council Americas Chairman’s Award “for his relentless promotion and pursuit of community broadband and of faster networks for everyone.” He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Cornell Law School.
