Our work in this area includes

-permitting and licensing

-obtaining advisory opinions which correctly and fairly apply law and facts to clients

-effective and rigorous advocacy of clients’ interests in the face of anticipated agency decisions


The credible and substantive relationships we have with key decision-makers in the executive, regulatory and administrative areas permit us to engage in forceful and effective advocacy for our clients.
