Our lawyers routinely represent clients in cases involving judicial review of federal government regulations. The firm typically files challenges to agency rules that adversely affect our clients’ interests, such as regulations issued by EPA, FCC, FDA, USDA, Department of Transportation and FERC. We regularly defend final rules or other agency action (by intervening or filing amicus briefs) against legal challenges that seek to undo favorable outcomes that our clients have achieved through the regulatory process. Whether challenging or defending agency action, the firm draws on a deep familiarity with the substantive and procedural standards of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) and precedents developed in the U.S. Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals, particularly the District of Columbia Circuit. The firm’s Appellate group has litigated a number of leading APA cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, the D.C. Circuit and other courts, and closely monitors case law around the country in order to provide clients with sophisticated analysis and advocacy regarding constitutional, statutory and administrative limits on government action.
