Business Law & Litigation: Regulatory Law

Many of the rules that have a direct impact on your business operations or your daily life are set not by elected officials, but by regulatory agencies. Regulatory agencies are created by statutes passed by federal, state, and local agencies. It is the job of these agencies to promulgate rules and regulations to fulfill the responsibilities vested in them by the laws that created them.

An understanding of regulatory law is imperative to remain in compliance with guidelines for operating your business or conducting your affairs. A failure to comply can have far-reaching consequences that can cost you money or even lead to criminal charges or a shut-down of business operations. Understanding and complying with regulatory guidelines is always the easiest option, but in some cases, challenging regulatory rules or seeking exemptions is necessary to achieve desired goals. In still other situations, accusations of regulatory violations must be met with aggressive defenses or effective negotiation of resolutions.

Whatever your involvement with the regulatory state, it is imperative that you are represented by New Jersey regulatory attorneys who can offer you the advice you need to achieve the best outcome possible under the circumstances. Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A. can provide the advice and guidance you need when dealing with local, state, and federal regulatory agencies.

Understanding Regulatory Law

Agencies created by local authorities, state government and the federal government have increasingly expanded their rulemaking powers and enhanced their enforcement techniques, creating a complex system that individuals and businesses must work within. In New Jersey alone, there are more than 15 different state departments, divisions, or public entities with their own unique functions affecting consumers and businesses.

These agencies have a hand in establishing rules and regulations affecting a wide and diverse array of areas of life. Regulations establish strict controls of alcoholic beverages; housing; mortgage financing; education; economic development and commerce; and banking and insurance. From the Turnpike Authority to the Racing Commission to the Board of Public Utilities, public entities oversee many aspects of the ways in which people eat, drink, entertain and live.

Why You Need a Regulatory Lawyer

Although businesses and consumers cannot know all of the local, state, and federal regulations on the books due to the sheer size of the regulatory state, compliance with all relevant rules and regulations is required.

A regulatory lawyer in New Jersey can provide assistance to businesses concerned about the impact of regulations on their operations. Attorneys can help industries and organizations develop effective lobbying efforts to prevent harmful regulations and update and improve industry-specific rules and guidelines. Attorneys who understand regulatory law can also assist with the development of compliance manuals and can provide advice on limiting the risks of regulatory violations that could be costly.

If you have been accused of violating a regulation, or if you wish to argue for an exemption or an exception to standard rules, an attorney at Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A. can also provide assistance in these areas. We routinely help clients limit or avoid consequences for regulatory violations and work to achieve success when arguing for variances or exemptions when regulations would otherwise adversely impact business operations.
