Trade & Professional Associations

We maintain one of the most extensive trade and professional association practices in the country. The firm serves as national or regional counsel to more than forty industry and professional associations, both private and public. For several associations, we function as general counsel and secretary. Our practice includes representation of association clients before state regulators and legislators on various matters extending from licensing and rulemaking to litigation and lobbying. We also provide association management services for clients.

We also represent association clients in trial and appellate litigation. Our trade association practice includes representation of industry consortia and other alliances. We address many of the same legal and business issues as we do for our traditional trade association clients.
