Whether your organization's business activity is highly regulated (such as the specialized administrative requirements that health care providers, electric utilities, and telecom companies must meet), or you simply need help securing a permit, ensuring compliance, or presenting your story in an administrative forum, the team at Burr & Forman uses their understanding of administrative policy, procedures, laws, and regulations to advocate on your behalf.
Our team members have been senior administrators in state licensing, treasury, and other regulatory agencies, as well as state legislators and counsel to legislative committees. Our team also has experience at the federal government level and in local government to be effective advocates on your behalf for any administrative and regulatory concerns.
Our firm has created relationships with state and federal government regulators that allow us to reach business solutions for our clients through convincing arguments that change administrative policy, shepherding clients through complex regulatory processes, and effective advocacy that results in positive outcomes. We work well with the members, staff, and legal counsel of state and federal agencies with authority in concerns as diverse as human resource management, procurement, public finance, environmental permitting, and health care. We also work effectively with and before state administrative law courts and other administrative agencies in responding to challenges or enforcement proceedings and appeals of administrative rulings by regulatory agencies.
We help clients in key regulated utility industries - electric power, telecommunications, water management, and transportation - work with state regulators to operate efficiently and effectively in today's complex mix of market economics and public policy. Our team is well versed in helping utilities in traditional regulatory concerns such as ratemaking proceedings, facility siting, and administrative litigation. More importantly, if you are a regulated utility company and want to undertake a competitive venture that will require the approval of regulatory authorities, Burr's knowledge and experience can be valuable for project completion.
