In almost any industry, there will be regulatory and compliance requirements imposed by either federal, state, or local governments that require planning on behalf of a business in order to avoid significant consequences. Being up to date on regulatory matters across a wide variety of industries allows us to counsel businesses to avoid legal complications and, in turn, avoid time-consuming and costly penalties.
Our experience spans agencies and industries.
Some of the agencies our firm has appeared before or dealt with on regulatory matters include:
- The Department of Justice
- U.S. Food and Drug Administration
- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
- The Securities and Exchange Commission
- Corporation for Public Broadcasting
- Office of Foreign Assets Control
- Health and Human Services – Office of Inspector General
- The Alabama Ethics Commission
- State of Alabama Real Estate Commission
- The Alabama Board of Medical Examiners
Not only are the attorneys aware of the most recent developments in regulatory matters, our practitioners are often consulted by regulatory bodies when they are drafting new rules. Being involved in some of the creation of regulations allows us to even more effectively represent our clients’ interests when a claim is made against them.
