Government & Regulatory Protective Gear
The past decade has seen unprecedented U.S. government oversight of both domestic and international commerce. While the pendulum may swing the opposite direction in coming years, public concerns regarding consumer protection, data privacy, and corporate malfeasance will keep regulatory issues front and center for the foreseeable future. Our interdisciplinary team of attorneys works to keep clients aware of legislative developments and represents them in negotiations and hearings before regulatory bodies. We also have the government experience to ably advocate when court challenges are necessary.
How Things Tick
A wide range of priorities motivates government stakeholders. Many Kilpatrick Townsend attorneys have served in senior capacities in the agency rulemaking process and have a first-hand understanding of the inner workings of key regulatory bodies, including the Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Federal Trade Commission. We are well equipped to represent clients in formal and informal enforcement actions before administrative law judges, commissions, and in federal and state court.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
