Legislative and Regulatory

Public policy, legislative action, and regulatory change can make or break a business or organization. BakerHostetler attorneys have sophisticated knowledge of the people, processes, and protocols on Capitol Hill and in capitals across the world to advocate on behalf of our client’s interests.

Our results-driven team, which includes former members of Congress, a former U.S. Ambassador, former key congressional staff, and former top government officials, routinely work with our clients to draft legislation, shape regulations, and ensure that our clients understand proposed or pending changes that might affect their bottom line.

Significant legal resources underpin and inform our lobbying and regulatory efforts. Our nationally recognized tax practice, for example, understands how tax law developments affect clients and can address client issues with policymakers at the IRS, Congress, and Department of the Treasury. The depth of our experience and practice enables us to provide comprehensive advice on federal and state campaign finance law, election law, lobbying and ethics laws, antitrust investigations and litigation, class actions, and health care issues.

Foreign governments in the United States and abroad also find our team valued partners on issues related to trade, security, customs, culture, and government relations.

The Annual Legislative and U.S. Government Policy Seminar, co-sponsored by BakerHostetler, is widely considered to be Washington’s most prominent annual seminar on legislative policy developments.
