With public notice and input, Virginia’s more than 100 government agencies and offices are able to create specific regulations in their respective fields. In addition, Virginia’s Administrative Process Act allows any person to request a state agency develop a new regulation or amend an existing one.
Our attorneys represent clients from an array of industries in front of their respective oversight agencies, boards, and commissions to help obtain approvals and comply with regulations governing their businesses. In addition, our clients trust our team to represent their interests in enforcement actions or disputes before hearing officers, administrative law judges, and state and federal courts.
Our work doesn’t end in Virginia, as we also represent clients in the analogous federal Administrative Procedure Act, which rules over Federal administrative law.
