Navigating the Regulatory Landscape

Administrative and government law is a highly complex, ever-changing area governed by an array of local and state statutes and ordinances. Any missteps can derail projects or open the door to litigation. Our lawyers remain current on this intricate regulatory environment to advise clients with precise, practicable strategies.

Government Law Is Relationship-Driven

Equally as important as legal acumen is an understanding of the relationships and dynamics underlying government operations. Our attorneys have spent decades serving as counsel to local government agencies, beginning with our firm’s founder serving as corporate counsel for the City of Charleston in the 1950s.  By nurturing connections and building trust with key government stakeholders and decision-makers, we leverage these networks to keep important initiatives on track and resolve conflicts for the betterment of our community.
