Representative Work

The Law Offices of Terry T. Campo, PLLC

Government Relations, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs

It is virtually impossible to ‘do business’ today without encountering government regulations. Rather than be passive victims of excessive regulation, businesses need to shape their environment by being proactive in contacts with elected officials and regulatory agencies. Government officials are increasingly ‘career politicians’ or credentialed ‘experts’ in a narrow field with no other knowledge or background in the business they regulate. Establishing two-way communications can head-off or mitigate against the agendas pursued by their competitors and activists.

Integrating Legal Strategies with Policy Analysis

Our legal services center on the intersection between law practice and public policy. Your objective may also require litigation. But simple economics teaches that before you go to court, you should try to shape the relevant laws or regulations to make them most favorable to your objective—especially when the Courts will look to the stated policy objectives of applicable laws when applying them to your case. This may involve amending the law or shaping the legislative history that guide regulatory agencies and courts in implementing the law. Whether your objective requires a long-term strategy to change the law, or can be advantaged by quietly inserting language into a ‘must-pass’ bill requires both a legal and political analysis.

The Law Offices of Terry T. Campo can integrate the legal, policy and political analysis to inform that strategic choice.
