Navigating government regulation for the clearest path to success
Our State & Local Legislation & Policy Group offers extensive experience in successfully resolving complex regulatory matters within a constantly evolving legal arena. Our team helps private companies negotiate contracts and agreements with state, city and local municipal governments. We work closely with the governmental regulatory agencies to resolve complex disputes. We manage negotiations that help our clients avoid government hearings. We also partner with our robust Real Estate Group to handle land use hearings to obtain entitlements and regulatory approvals.
The Group includes attorneys and policy advisors who have been legal counsel and key aides to governors, senators and congressmen, as well as members of state and local regulatory boards. Because the group's members maintain regular communication with representatives of government agencies, they know the current and proposed regulations and how those regulations will affect the business environment. We service a diverse clientele that includes health care institutions, gaming companies, telecommunications firms, manufacturers, real estate developers, the resort and entertainment industries, municipalities and government contractors.
