Administrative Law & New York City Compliance Issues

The law firm of Bernfeld DeMatteo and Bernfeld has vast experience with New York ongoing compliance issues and administrative law hearings before government agencies and administrative law judges. Administrative law encompasses laws and legal principles governing the administration and regulation of city, county, state and federal government agencies involving:

  • Rules
  • Regulations
  • Applications
  • Licenses
  • Permits
  • Available information
  • Hearings
  • Appeals and decision-making

Having an administrative law attorney is essential because the rules and regulations are often special for each administrative agency and are not usually found in state or federal statutes but in the regulations governing the agencies. Administrative law is broken into several interrelated parts:

  • Administrative rules
  • Regulations and procedures for government agencies and bodies
  • The scope of agency authority, particularly individual privacy
  • Enforcement powers of agencies

Governmental agencies must act within Constitutional parameters. These and other limits are in statutes such as the Federal Administrative Procedure Act and state analogs. Bernfeld DeMatteo and Bernfeld is well versed in the requirements of the Federal Administrative Procedure Act, and experienced with such issues as:

  • Business and economic regulation
  • Industry restructuring and deregulation
  • Contracting and project development
  • Trade regulation
  • Legislative consultation
  • Lobbying registration
  • Reporting requirements

Administrative law attorneys specialize in the inner workings of city, county, state and federal government. They handle complicated legal issues with proceedings involving governmental law and regulation. We have handled cases involving:

  • Healthcare law
  • Federal Medicare law
  • NY State Department of Health
  • NY State Department of Labor in regards to pyrotechnics industry
  • Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives BATFE

We are also among the few law firms in NY with expertise in the state and federal regulation of the pyrotechnics industry.
