Government regulation can have a profound impact on business. Regulatory and enforcement actions can result in significant fines and costs, foreclose opportunities, and threaten the very existence of a company or its industry. Smart companies understand that regulatory compliance is not just a good idea, it’s a necessity, and a critical component in sound strategic planning.
We represent businesses and individuals in administrative and judicial proceedings before North Carolina’s state agencies and boards, in the Office of Administrative Hearings, and in judicial review proceedings. Having served as counsel to several agencies, we understand the regulatory process and know how to resolve matters efficiently and effectively, either through early negotiation or formal hearings. Having also represented numerous companies, we also understand the need to balance business and legal interests.
Our most common services include occupational and business licensing, representation before state boards and agencies and, when necessary, challenges to adverse agency rulings or actions. We also assist in the development and implementation of regulatory compliance programs.
