Administrative Law

Representation of Professionals, Businesses and Governmental Entities

Our administrative law practice involves traditional advice and representation on all forms of administrative disputes. We regularly represent clients and governmental entities in proceedings related to environmental regulations, business and professional regulations, bid protests, certificate of need proceedings, and related disputes.

Florida especially has been in the nation's forefront in growth matters. Our experience on both sides of administrative disputes allows us to offer deep insights and proactive representation focused on helping our professional, business, and governmental clients achieve favorable outcomes as cost-effectively as possible.

About Our Administrative Law Practice

Within our administrative law practice, we focus on representing clients in litigation under Florida’s Administrative Procedures Act and the federal Administrative Procedures Act. These statutes are similar in name only. While both establish special rules and procedures for disputes involving governmental entities, the rules and procedures for administrative litigation at the state level in Florida are very different from those for administrative litigation in federal court.

With our lawyers’ extensive administrative litigation experience throughout Florida, we are well-versed in both sets of legal requirements. We handle all types of administrative disputes in Florida, including those that involve:

In many cases, the first formal step at the state level is to seek a resolution at the Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH). The DOAH has adopted an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) program designed to streamline the administrative dispute process. In ADR cases, we work on behalf of our clients to achieve favorable non-litigation outcomes whenever possible, but always keep open the possibility of litigating to protect our clients’ interests if necessary.
