Government regulations and oversight present businesses and business leaders with some of the greatest challenges they face, and this challenge is expected to intensify with increasing regulation under the Biden administration. Agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and others are expected to issue a slate of new or resurrected regulations that will have sweeping impacts.
The ever-changing political and regulatory environment and the tendency of federal and state agencies to impose more — and more complicated — regulations, leaves decision makers in business guessing and uncertain. It is a fact of corporate life that organizations must understand, and comply with or challenge when necessary, regulations covering a vast and growing range of topics. Companies need experienced counsel who can advise and litigate when the public policy and business conduct overlap.
Cozen O’Connor has been providing government and regulatory counsel to sophisticated clients for more than 40 years. We represent public and private companies, family businesses, corporate boards and committees, directors and officers, investors and investment funds, nonprofits, and trade associations in a wide range of industries. With more than 825 attorneys in 29 cities on two continents, we routinely handle matters that cross borders and cross legal jurisdictions. Our attorneys are deeply knowledgeable about the regulatory requirements and decision-making processes at the federal, state, and local level.
We have experience in all major areas of oversight, including antitrust and trade regulation, transportation and logistics, health care, energy and environment, and consumer protection and privacy. Our attorneys have held high level government positions at the state and federal level. We represent private clients in matters adverse to administrative agencies, in response to congressional inquiries and investigations and provide counsel on regulatory compliance. In addition, we advise government officials, companies and individuals on government ethics, freedom of information act, lobbying compliance and campaign finance.
In addition, our government and regulatory lawyers work closely with Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies — a bipartisan government relations firm that advocates for clients before all branches of the federal government and before state decision makers around the country. Our skilled professionals, many of whom are former government officials and campaign veterans, provide legislative and executive branch advocacy, policy analysis, government procurement and funding program assistance, political strategy and crisis management. We help navigate the complex maze of governmental policy, politics, and process, and make sure that our clients’ voices are heard.
