The legislative process is never as neat and tidy as it looks on paper. Clients need an experienced guide to help them navigate the process and carefully monitor progress. We know the players and the culture and can help clients find and pursue the most effective course to accomplish their legislative goals.
POLICY LANGUAGE DRAFTING
Drafting new laws and regulations is an art as well as science. Every word has consequences and careful research should be done to ensure the language has the intended effect. Whether it is reviewing an already drafted law or starting from a blank page, we have the experience and skill necessary to help clients be effective and successful in their policy goals.
Whether your organization is brand new or has been operating for years, it's important to stay on top of changes in the regulatory landscape. Beyond the regular reporting and tracking issues questions frequently arise within the organization. We can help your organization explore options and choose a course of action that makes sense for your goals.
LEGAL RESEARCH AND BRIEF WRITING
Even the best attorneys can use some back up from time to time. Appellate brief writing and Constitutional challenges have different requirements from any other court document. Novel legal issues require hours of detailed research. Most attorneys in small firms do not want to put the rest of their practice on hold to work on a single sticky issue in a single case. We assist attorneys and their firms by providing additional research and writing support on a case-by-case basis.
MEDICAL CANNABIS LICENSING AND COMPLIANCE
A brand new regulatory structure and market place is opening in Missouri. The first round of applications has closed, but the market is still evolving. We can assist clients in shaping medical cannabis policy and in maintaining their license.
