GOVERNMENT RELATIONS & REGULATORY
Government regulations are often complex, and companies face new challenges each time the rules change. At Nixon Peabody, we can help companies navigate the rules and regulations that govern their industries. We understand how government works, so we know where to look for opportunities that can help open doors for growth, innovation, and profits. From compliance to legislative advocacy, our full-service government relations solutions can provide an effective tool for advancing a client’s business objectives.
Nixon Peabody’s Government Relations & Regulatory practice offers the combined knowledge, experience, and connections of more than 50 attorneys and professionals, many with backgrounds working for the agencies or legislative bodies governing our clients. Our team includes a former member of Congress and attorneys who worked in various regulatory agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), as well as state and local governments such as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Revenue Commission and New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal.
From our vantage point in Washington, DC, and in commercial centers across Europe and Asia, we stay on top of legislative and political developments that affect our clients. We help companies anticipate, navigate, and comply with the myriad regulations, large and small, that govern their industries, including those concerning housing, real estate and public finance, energy, environmental, health care and hospitals, higher education, life sciences, government contracts, tax and tax credits, and labor and employment. Whether a client needs a voice in Congress or before a local administrative board, we advocate wherever needed for legislative or policy change that aligns with a client’s business strategy.
