When your business operations are adversely impacted by federal, state or local government action in the United States, our team uses a unique skillset and decades of litigation experience to help you secure strategic relief. If needed, we sue governments on your behalf for laws they enact, regulations they promulgate and agency actions they undertake.
To benefit a wide variety of clients regulated by the government, including companies and trade associations across all industries and sectors, our team designs and brings legal challenges to actions taken by federal, state, and local governments and their subsidiary agencies.
Litigation is one of many tools we use to help you achieve your objectives: When you have a problem with the government, we analyze the issues, map out a strategy and explore whether litigation will be most effective for you. Partnering with our colleagues in health, tax, energy, transactions and other areas frequently affected by government action, we contest federal and state laws as unconstitutional or preempted, bring Administrative Procedure Act challenges to regulations, and challenge a variety of agency decisions. When appropriate, we are also adept at building media relations strategies to nurture your message in the public sphere.
With long experience in federal, state and local government lawsuits; a winning record; and encyclopedic knowledge of constitutional lawsuits, Section 1983 lawsuits and other frequent actions against the government, our team has a clear view of current law—and a strong vision for how we can use sound, creative legal reasoning to push it in other directions based on your needs. As a responsive, client-focused group, we bring strategic thinking, a deep understanding of administrative law, litigation skill and superior legal writing to your most novel problems.
