Federal Legislative & Regulatory Processes

Beyond the Courtroom

At the Washington DC-based law firm of Ackerson Kauffman Fex, we understand that lawsuits can only go so far. Sometimes, the law itself must be changed. Administrative rules must be updated. These options may be above and beyond the scope of the average law firm, but we are not an average law firm.

Since 1991, our federal legislative and regulatory processes practice has involved:

  • Drafting comments and statutory language
  • Drafting and advocating for federal legislation
  • Drafting testimony
  • Testifying before congressional legislative committees
  • Administrative hearings and appeals
  • Court challenges to administrative rules


Extensive Capitol Hill Experience

Founding partner Nels Ackerson is a former senior staff member of the United States Senate and a congressional candidate, regularly involved in legislation and policy matters for more than three decades. Under his leadership, our law firm has successfully urged passage of federal legislation. Among our successes was legislation to resolve problems with the agricultural credit system. Navigating Capitol Hill is not new to us.

Review Our Record of Success

Our successes speak for themselves. We also take pride in what The National Law Journal, American Lawyer and others have said about our law firm.
