To succeed in today’s challenging business environment, companies need a legal partner that understands New Jersey’s regulatory framework and is committed to advocating for and effectuating change. Connell Foley’s Regulatory Affairs and Compliance Group is comprised of a bi-partisan team of lawyers intimately familiar with the regulatory, legislative and governmental processes, and focused on making an impact for our clients.
Drawing upon extensive experience in both the public and private sectors, Connell Foley attorneys are equally versed in identifying opportunities and promoting client interests as they are in guiding businesses through regulatory and compliance requirements. In a highly regulated state such as New Jersey, we are especially proud of our intimate understanding of our client industries, particularly environmental, real estate, health care, cannabis, insurance, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, banking and gaming.
Our Regulatory Affairs and Compliance Group assists companies by identifying and evaluating legislative developments that could impact their business goals, creating plans to effectuate beneficial change, monitoring statutory progress, and advocating on behalf of client interests through relationship building. When regulatory developments are poised to affect clients negatively or run counter to their goals, we offer informed strategies to move forward.
As a result of our years of client advocacy, and working directly in government positions, we have developed a trusted reputation among decision makers at all levels of government. Our attorneys have served on gubernatorial transition teams for both political parties, as well as directly in governors’ and legislative offices. We are highly regarded by the state, county and local officials with whom we have worked and developed relationships over many years. By serving as a business ambassador for our clients, we work to ensure their interests are heard.
With the interplay of complex state and federal regulations often creating challenges for businesses, Connell Foley also advises clients on regulatory and corporate compliance. We provide counsel on developing appropriate compliance programs for businesses in regulated industries, and we represent businesses before governmental entities, agencies and boards in compliance filings. As a full-service law firm, we are proud to offer our regulatory clients a complement of services, including counsel on corporate transactions, litigation and alternative dispute resolution, white collar criminal defense, immigration, labor and employment, insurance, banking, construction, environmental, real estate, cybersecurity, mass torts and product liability, professional liability, and taxation and estate planning.
