Legislative and Policy Counseling

Leveraging our extensive industry knowledge and awareness of emerging issues to ensure our clients have a voice in the policies and law that affect their legal and business objectives

We don’t just interpret laws and policies – we help shape them. 

Our clients rely on our subject matter expertise to persuasively educate policymakers about issues affecting the industry and the practical challenges they face.  RMMS routinely submits policy statements to proposed FDA and PTO regulations, drafts comments to guidance documents and information requests, files amicus briefs on issues that have wide-spread implications on the industry, and attends and participates in public hearings and meetings on behalf of our clients to vigorous advocate for issues important to them. 

Legislative and policy counseling from proven advocates

We’ve met with and made submissions to senior government officials and members of Congress and their staff, including the Congressional Budget Office, to help shape key industry policies and legislation such as:

  • The 2003 amendments to the Medicare Modernization Act (MMA)

  • Citizen Petition reform
