Administrative Law Practice

Administrative law encompasses laws and legal principles governing the administration and regulation of government agencies, including those at the federal, state and local governmental levels. While our administrative lawyers represents a large number of clients before a myriad of such agencies, the legal authority and constraints of these agencies depend in large part on general principles of administrative law. This practice includes the representation of clients with issues related to the powers granted to these agencies, the validity and effect of rules and regulations adopted by these agencies and the relationship of these agencies to the client.

Some examples of the agencies before which we practice are:

Local governments:

  • Zoning commissions
  • Planning commissions
  • Election commissions
  • Housing authorities

State government:

  • Medical professional licensing boards
  • Environmental agencies
  • Taxing authorities
  • Agencies regulating employee benefits
  • Bank regulatory agencies

Federal government:

  • Federal Election Commission
  • Federal Communications Commission
  • Patent and Trademark Office
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
  • Securities and Exchange Commission
  • Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
