Administrative Law

Smith Duggan Buell & Rufo has extensive experience in the field of administrative law and government regulation.

We represent individuals, professionals and businesses in dealings with state and federal regulatory, licensing and other administrative agencies, ranging from behind-the-scenes legal advice to our clients, through informal communications with agency staff for clarification of agency requirements, to the full fledged conduct of formal administrative proceedings and litigation in federal and state courts challenging the actions of federal and state administrative agencies.

We also have substantial experience representing state agencies and independent governmental authorities, including the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, and the Massachusetts Port Authority. We also have represented, among others, the Kentucky Department of Insurance, the Massachusetts Department of State Police, and the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority.
