Assisting Clients with Federal, State and Local Government Regulations
The government regulatory process has a profound impact on businesses by causing unnecessary distractions, loss of productivity, significant costs, and foreclosed opportunities. At McBrayer, our lawyers know what is at stake for the regulated community and we work hard with regulating agencies, boards, and commissions to secure the best possible outcome for our clients. We walk our clients through the complex interactions and steps that accompany rulemaking, approvals, hearings, and judicial review of administrative action.
The McBrayer Advantage
Our administrative lawyers have exceptional experience with representing clients who are challenging or defending government action. We rely on the team approach by working with an array of lawyers from our other practice areas, such as Litigation, Labor & Employment, Healthcare, and Gaming. By putting our experience and knowledge of these areas of the law to work, we are able to help our clients minimize or eliminate government intrusiveness and, more importantly, create strong and lasting relationships with agencies or officials with whom interaction is required. When needed, the MML&K Government Solutions team will coordinate with our Administrative Law attorneys to provide unrivaled protection, issue understanding and advocacy to advance our clients' needs. We ensure that our clients not only have representation at the agency level, but also in front of state and national lawmakers so that favorable provisions in statutes and rules can be created and protected.
McBrayer administrative lawyers routinely represent clients who are dealing with issues involving licensure, permits, variances, exemptions, approvals, professional discipline hearings, rulemaking hearings, and opinions in connection with existing regulations. We have proven experience dealing with agencies such as the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control, Horse Racing Commission, Kentucky Public Service Commission, Executive Branch Ethics Commission, Legislative Branch Ethics Commission, Commission on Proprietary Education, Department of Charitable Gaming, Department of Environmental Protection, Board of Medical Licensure, and Board of Adjustment - just to name a few.
