Administrative and Regulatory Compliance Law

Administrative law has become one of the most complex and rapidly growing areas of our legal system. As legislatures continue to create and delegate authority to federal and state agencies, the increase in regulations requires businesses and professionals to ensure compliance with their respective regulating agency. Compliance with agency regulations can be a daunting task because of the regulations' complex nature. Our lawyers are experienced in regulatory law and are in constant contact with government officials. This unique position allows us to counsel you and your business on regulatory compliance, ensuring your success.

At The Strause Law Group, PLLC, administrative law is one of our major practice areas. Our attorneys have extensive experience in counseling our clients to ensure regulatory compliance with many federal and state agencies. At our firm we educate our clients about the importance of being proactive in compliance to ensure the proper protection of their businesses. Our Louisville and Lexington attorneys understand the stress involved with attaining regulatory compliance and use our expertise to minimize that stress. We know that compliance today substantially reduces the risk of violations and sanctions in the future.

Administrative Hearings

When compliance issues occur, you must act quickly to defend yourself against the action the agency is taking against you. In Kentucky, our legislature has afforded those participating in the administrative system procedural protections in KRS Chapter 13B. This chapter requires that before an agency can take any adverse action against you, you are afforded a KRS 13B hearing, which is a formal proceeding and trial-like in nature. A KRS 13B hearing is what all agencies at a minimum must provide, but often an agency will provide even more procedural protections. An attorney with a comprehensive understanding of the interconnectedness of KRS 13B and the other applicable regulations is essential to your defense.

At The Strause Law Group, PLLC, we possess the necessary experience of the administrative system to effectively handle your compliance issues. Our attorneys have handled a broad range of cases before a variety of administrative agencies and have developed strategies that have proven successful time and again. Our firm has represented clients before state and federal agencies, and some examples are:
