Federal Election Commission Representation


Wiley Rein’s Election Law & Government Ethics Practice “excels at representing clients in proceedings involving the FEC” (Chambers USA 2010). For over 30 years, our attorneys have represented clients before the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in enforcement actions, advisory opinion requests, and rulemaking proceedings. Many of our attorneys, which include a former FEC Chairman, have served at the FEC and possess unique insight into how the agency operates. 

Our experience in this area includes:

  • Defending clients in enforcement actions, known as Matters Under Review (MURs);
  • Representing clients in sua sponte matters, involving self-reported campaign finance violations;
  • Representing clients in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) negotiations;
  • Representing political committees in audits;
  • Assisting clients in requesting advisory opinions; and
  • Filing comments on behalf of our clients in rulemaking proceedings.
