The attorneys of The Bagert Law Firm in New Orleans have represented clients in a wide range of dealings with state and federal government agencies.The rules of government regulatory boards and agencies are often out of bounds.

We can help your voice be heard in government as laws and regulations that affect you or business are being made. Our lawyers can help you comply with government regulations or defend you against alleged regulatory violations. When necessary, we have taken governmental agencies to court and had their decisions overturned.

Because our attorneys have held appointed and elected office, we have a deep understanding of state and federal governmental agencies and of administrative procedures. This helps us to advance our clients' views before governmental bodies with credibility and effectiveness.

We have represented clients before local, state and federal governmental agencies and have testified before committees of the United States Congress. When federal regulatory agencies have reached decisions that were unfair to our clients, we have taken them to court and succeeded in reversing those decisions.

We are adept at monitoring legislative and executive proceedings, participating in regulatory proceedings, obtaining licenses and permits, and advising clients about efforts to procure public contracts.
