Government is involved in nearly every sector of the economy.  Virtually all professions and many occupations are subject to licensing laws.  Air, water, communications, healthcare and transportation facilities are heavily regulated.  In this environment, clients need experienced counsel.  We are go-to counsel for clients who are permitted, licensed, or regulated by federal, state, and local governments.  

Our attorneys represent clients before virtually every regulatory or licensing agency in California and many of the comparable federal agencies.  Whether assisting in obtaining a permit or defending a license in an accusation proceeding brought by a licensing agency, we provide insightful and effective counsel.

We have the experience and expertise to advise and represent clients on substantive compliance issues involving a host of regulatory programs or statutes, often transcending several practice areas.  This includes counseling regulated clients regarding existing rules, obtaining agency interpretations or guidance, as well as designing, drafting, and seeking the promulgation of regulatory changes.  Our attorneys have the skill and ability on both the state and federal levels to represent clients in administrative law matters.
