More than a dozen Lindquist & Vennum attorneys help people and businesses deal with federal, state and local governmental agencies. We understand how administrative processes are different than other legal processes. We also understand how they connect with public policy and political considerations.

With our attorneys’ depth of experience in regulatory and governmental affairs, we can help clients understand how administrative agencies work and select the right approach to an issue, whether it’s working with agency staff to solve a problem or litigating because agency action is the problem. We have interacted with federal agencies and with state, county and city governmental bodies throughout the Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions, as well as in numerous other states.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
