State Regulatory Board and Professional Associations

Venable attorneys have the experience, connections, and know-how to help boards and their associations stay on the right side of the law and shift the legislative landscape at the federal, state, and local levels.

When our clients face high-pressure obstacles, like antitrust scrutiny, deregulatory efforts, due process challenges, and increasingly a lack of judicial deference to their decisions, our team is there to assist. Whether crafting legislative language to address hostile legislation, advising boards on implementing regulatory changes, or drafting amicus briefs to obtain favorable legal outcomes, Venable attorneys strategically advise organizations on how to make policy changes. In addition, Venable is here to help when boards and associations look inward and want to protect themselves from future challenges to their own organizations or professions.

Because we have one of the largest and most-experienced practices for counseling state regulatory boards and their associations, we offer a unique perspective on the increasingly unpredictable regulatory landscape, which enables us to spot cross-industry trends and pitfalls. We have consummate experience in drafting model laws, model regulations, and industry-wide standards.

We help boards and associations anticipate changing practices and priorities, from the White House to state houses in all 50 states, U.S. territories, and Washington, DC. We anticipate and counsel on avoiding challenges that may present to state boards and industry associations; but if an investigation, enforcement action, or even litigation is initiated, we provide strategic defense before agencies, as well as before courts of law and public opinion. Because we have a full-service philosophy and the resources to back it up, our clients can focus on achieving their goals rather than worrying about regulatory hurdles.
