Koyulyn K. Miller

Associate

Koyulyn Miller advises clients in the communications and technology sectors, specializing in enforcement matters before government agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). She works tirelessly to unpack and analyze complex legal matters, counseling clients on how to navigate enforcement and other regulatory proceedings. Drawing from her years of experience working in the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau, she educates clients on practical matters such as how to respond to Commission correspondence and enforcement actions, how and when to broach negotiations with Commission staff, and how to implement proactive measures to ensure compliance with the relevant regulations and statutory provisions going forward.

Before joining Squire Patton Boggs, Koy served as special counsel to the chief of the Enforcement Bureau at the Federal Communications Commission. In that role, she worked alongside Commission staff to develop new compliance policies and to oversee implementation of the Commission’s current policies. Prior to that appointment, she served as a legal advisor in the Enforcement Bureau front office for more than four years, providing sound legal and policy guidance to key FCC staff, including senior management within the Enforcement Bureau, as well as Commission policy staff, litigators and other agency decision makers. During her time at the Commission, Koy focused on a number of enforcement areas, including but not limited to, wireless hearing aid compatibility; unauthorized operation; international Section 214 authorization; unauthorized equipment marketing (including the sale and operation of jammers); auction collusion and other auction-related matters; unauthorized transfer and assignment of licenses; Universal Service Fund compliance (focusing on E-rate and Lifeline issues) and other federal regulatory reporting and contribution matters; compliance with regulations related to antenna structures and certain environmental requirements; as well as consumer-related compliance matters, such as prepaid calling card marketing and TCPA regulations.

Outside of her enforcement practice, Koy helps draft broad strategic plans and advocacy materials for clients, including proposals for action before Congress, as well as federal and state regulatory agencies. Specifically, she counsels clients in the automotive and technology industries, advising companies and a major trade association on regulatory matters – including those related to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and intelligent transportation systems. In addition, she provides senior-level guidance on specific regulatory matters, including compliance with laws addressing data security and privacy, e-commerce (including endorsements, contests and other forms of online marketing), the provision of wireless and wireline service, program access and other video programming issues, trademark use and protection, spectrum leasing, federal funding and contribution programs (including the Universal Service Fund), as well as the domestic and international regulation of edge providers.

During law school, Koy served as an associate justice and coach on the Moot Court Advisory Board, and tutored other students in Constitutional law, appellate advocacy and legal writing.
