Regulatory Counseling

The Mike Cox Law Firm does not lobby, but we do provide regulatory counseling and strategies to assist clients with navigating an increasingly complex governmental environment.

Our regulatory counseling practices assist our clients with avoiding litigation with governmental agencies; or, once involved in litigation, we assist our clients in winning or resolving the litigation in the most expedient and successful manner possible. We understand that oftentimes the best litigation strategy with governmental actors is, to first understand the agencies’ legal obligations and practical objectives, and then tailor our legal strategy to their goals. Sometimes that entails litigation in court or administrative hearings, but often, a well-reasoned argument to the agency’s lawyers before litigation best achieves the client’s goals.
