We believe successful business law representation requires knowledge of, and familiarity with, each industry’s applicable laws and regulations. Our clients not only need to demonstrate compliance with the various rules governing their industries, they also have to negotiate the confusing legislative procedures, along with the rulemaking processes, that impact their work. That’s why Fetherston Edmonds offers comprehensive counsel on government and administrative law on the local, state and federal levels. Our services in this area include:

Representing you when regulators come knocking


Some businesses, by their nature, have a complicated — and potentially adversarial — relationship with regulators. Things like demonstrating compliance with workplace safety or environmental regulations — or even obtaining variances from municipal zoning laws — require knowledgeable, experienced attorneys to ensure things go right.
