Regulatory Defense

Your Advocate for Every Enforcement Action

Experienced counsel to guide you from initial contact with regulators through hearings and appeals.

Inquiries from government regulators and licensing boards represent daunting times for businesses and individuals. It is important to have experienced counsel to help guide you through these trying stages, from initial communications with regulators through hearings and appeals.

First, we make sure we understand your profession and your business. We then communicate with the regulator to understand the scope of the inquiry or investigation. Next, we defend you and your business throughout the inquiry or investigation – from responding to subpoenas, to settlement conferences, to administrative hearings and to appeals. Finally, we provide counsel and advice to prevent future inquiries and investigations.
