Dow Lohnes provides its clients with sophisticated leadership and support to secure legislative and regulatory remedies. Our lawyers have for many years been deeply involved in both the periodic reauthorization of the Higher Education Act and in the extensive rulemaking proceedings that inevitably follow upon each reauthorization, as well as in the appropriations process and in the securing of very specialized forms of legislative and regulatory relief in a variety of areas affecting institutions, educational telecommunications and intellectual property matters among others. The firm has served both individual institutions seeking legislative remedies and organizations concerned with the broad interests of their members.
Our legislative team consists of attorneys with years of experience in Congress, on the Hill and in Federal agencies, and a keen understanding of the postsecondary industry.
Dow Lohnes attorneys also counsel institutions regarding current election law, advising with respect to the permissibility of proposed political contributions, proper filings with the Federal Election Commission, the IRS and state election agencies, and the establishment and maintenance of political action committees.
