Washington Know-How

Venable knows the Washington regulatory arena inside and out

We understand government agencies and the officials who run them.  Many of our attorneys and legislative advisors previously distinguished themselves in senior roles in federal and state governments.  When it comes to regulatory compliance, we use our extensive experience, both inside and outside the government, to deliver exceptionally well-informed strategic advice and pragmatic legal solutions. 

Our attorneys help clients comply with complex regulations and avoid government inquiries.  Should it become necessary, we work with them throughout the course of government investigations.  Our experience enables us to move quickly to prevent matters from turning into formal enforcement actions.  Across a wide range of industries and issues, Venable provides strategic counsel at the place where business, policy, and government regulations intersect.
