Butzel has a presence locally—and around the world
As a large firm headquartered in Michigan, we possess a strong presence in the state. Attorneys in our Lansing, Detroit, Troy, Ann Arbor, and Grand Rapids offices are closely intwined with the economic and political climate across the Great Lakes region. And with an office in major political venue Washington, D.C., our team of professionals are connected to the pulse of the nation and countries abroad. Europe and the Far East have become economic power centers and natural hubs for international government relations. We serve as trusted advisors and partners to businesses, governments, and trade associations around the globe.
Industries and organizations throughout the world seek the counsel of the experienced attorneys and professionals that comprise Butzel’s Government Relations and Regulatory Specialty Team. We are proud that we have built an enviable level of trust among our clients in the ever-changing economic and political climates we do business in today.
By leveraging our deep relationships and extensive knowledge, we bolster our clients’ presence and advocate their positions in myriad scenarios, whether that consists of orchestrating resolutions to onerous compliance issues or litigating matters that can arise during a campaign or election, navigating government and internal investigations, or US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Over time, we have built relationships with key decision-makers and advocacy groups from Congress, the White House, and federal agencies and non-governmental groups that extend from Washington, D.C. to US state capitals and across Europe to deliver policy results for our clients.

Our team has a nuanced understanding of the administrative, regulatory, and legislative bodies that assist our clients in meeting key business objectives.

We handle matters before all levels of local, state, and federal administrative agencies and courts in a wide range of matters—at hearings, trials, appeals, and various administrative actions—including 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, oil and gas, public utilities, taxation, telecommunications, and FDA and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulation.
As a large firm, we are able to harness the depth and breadth of the numerous practice departments across the firm. Through collaboration with our colleagues and our joint venture with Michigan Legislative Consultants, BL Government Affairs (BLGA), we offer a powerful combination of legal, political, and regulatory experience that provides us with access to key contacts in the federal and state legislative and regulatory arenas.
