Regulatory and Compliance

Legislation, regulations, enforcement actions, and industry guidelines, at both the federal and state level, can significantly impact both a company’s business operations in the present and its strategic planning for the future. Companies must comply with all of these laws and standards, many of which seemingly conflict simultaneously.

DarrowEverett’s Regulatory and Compliance team advises our clients on the appropriate course of action when navigating challenging government regulations and/or agency actions. We regularly represent our clients before agencies that regulate industries such as cannabis cultivation and distribution, environment, financial services, healthcare, investment management, licensing, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, public utilities, renewable and non-renewable energy, telemarketing and sales, and wireless communications.
