Massey & Gail draws on the vast experience of its lawyers, including former federal, state, and local government officials, to advise businesses, public advocacy groups, and other clients on a wide range of regulatory and administrative matters. Government regulation at the federal, state, and/or local level touches nearly every aspect of business activity. Our team of administrative law experts helps clients navigate the maze of these regulations at all phases of the process. We analyze proposed rules and regulations and help clients submit comments, engage with administrative bodies to resolve potential disputes, seek judicial review of rules and regulations, and litigate complicated questions of administrative law.
We assist clients in challenges to agency actions implementing a wide range of federal statutory schemes, including the Telecommunications Act, CERCLA and other environmental laws, securities laws, and banking statutes. We also handle atypical administrative proceedings, such as challenges to federally set copyright royalty rates for commercial webcasting services. And we represent clients before many federal agencies, including the FTC, FCC, EPA, and DOJ. We also represent clients in state administrative and regulatory proceedings. In addition, our appellate litigators represent clients in administrative law matters and have prepared U.S. Supreme Court and court of appeals amicus briefs on important questions of administrative law.
