At Butzel, we understand the nuances surrounding government agencies at all levels. The depth of our experience in federal government relations is hard-earned over years spent developing relationships with policymakers and influential decision-makers in Congress, the White House, and at federal agencies locally, nationally, and abroad. Whether we are working out resolutions to compliance issues or litigating matters, it is our goal to achieve outcomes that lie in the best interests of our clients—and to ultimately achieve their business objectives.
Our Federal Government Relations Team is renowned for our reputation as an influential and experienced group of professionals with strong connections to decision-makers in the federal sector. We have curated open lines of communication with lawmakers, high-ranking officials, and staff aligning with both parties. We advocate for our clients with the greatest level of integrity and have worked hard to gain a reputation we are proud of.
The professionals on this team possess the experience our clients can depend on to interpret and comply with current laws and regulations pertinent to their industry, advocate to make changes, and when necessary, litigate in federal courts and administrative agencies. We negotiate and structure economic incentives for new investment at all levels, and we have advised on several of the largest and most significant developments in Michigan that relate to tax abatements, public grants, brownfield credit, and investment.
The depth of our experience includes advocating for clients to effect how regulations and laws are enacted in areas such as antitrust and trade regulation, corporate and securities regulation, education, energy and natural resources, environment, financing, health care fraud defense, health care licensing, immigration, infrastructure construction, insurance, labor and employment, licensing, oil and gas, public utilities, taxation, telecommunications, FDA and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulation, and more.
