The advantage our government regulation attorneys provide clients is that we draw on our comprehensive business and legislative experience to evaluate and consistently resolve the regulatory as well as political challenges that our clients face on a daily basis. Our firm’s government and regulatory practice includes:

Administrative Law
Administrative agencies, which are agencies of the state and federal governments, are often vested with rule making authority. It is this ruling making authority that gives rise to a myriad of rules and regulations created by these government agencies – these rules and regulations are commonly referred to as “administrative laws.” Today, administrative laws affect virtually every aspect of business and every day life. These administrative laws can take effect with little notice and the changes can be drastic. Calabrese Law Associates leverages its government, regulatory, and legislative experience to properly advise clients of all administrative laws that may affect them, their businesses, construction and/or real estate development projects. The firm’s administrative law attorneys understand the function and limitations of government agencies and it is this knowledge that Calabrese Law Associates utilizes to achieve the best possible result for its administrative law clients in Boston and throughout Massachusetts.

Appeal of Admin Agency Decisions
Calabrese Law Associates leverages its appeals litigation expertise and government/regulatory practice to effectively represent clients’ through the complicated process of appealing an administrative agency decision. Administrative agencies, which are agencies of the state and federal government, are becoming more common and powerful with each passing day. These government agencies often times have “rule” making authority and they use this authority to implement regulations that control specific sectors of society. This web of regulations overlap with the state law and federal law, creating a situation where, generally, a person/business cannot appeal a government agency decision to a court of law unless (1) the government agency issues a final decision and (2) the person/business appeals of the decision with the agency itself. Generally, only after all inter-agency appeal options are exhausted may a person/business file an appeal with a court of law.
