Founded by former regulators from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Mac Murray & Shuster (M&S) specializes in helping businesses across highly regulated industries manage federal and state consumer protection and privacy demands and defend against government enforcement action and investigations. Having worked in the trenches on both sides of consumer protection law, our attorneys bring a deep understanding of the regulatory landscape that only comes from having helped shape it themselves. We are uniquely positioned to help businesses proactively manage their compliance responsibilities and establish a defensible position that serves to mitigate risk and support a compliance culture.
Our diverse client base spans small and mid-market firms to Fortune 50 companies in industries ranging from teleservices and consumer marketing to financial services, healthcare, and charitable contributions. Our clients rely on us to help them:
- Understand federal and state regulatory obligations;
- Evaluate the risks associated with varied compliance strategies;
- Obtain required licensing;
- Assess marketing, advertising, and other customer engagement initiatives;
- Evaluate, develop, and enhance formal compliance programs;
- Work with regulators to bring concerns to quick resolution; and
- Defend against enforcement actions, litigation, and class actions.
Combining our experience as both regulators and attorneys in “big law,” we launched M&S in 2007 with the dream of doing things differently. And we have…bringing to our clients:
Experience that’s relevant: Not all experience is equal. We bring unique insight into how state attorneys general and federal agencies interpret and enforce complex regulations. We know how regulators think and can anticipate challenges that may not be obvious…helping businesses manage their risk more effectively.
Partnerships that work: Our only goal is our clients’ success, as defined by them. We embrace their business, respect their culture, and work as an extension of their team.
Customized solutions that deliver: There is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing compliance challenges. Our clients rely on our depth of experience, creative approach, and collaborative process to keep them ahead of constantly changing regulation.
Devotion to doing the right thing: We are committed to delivering great work that fuels our clients’ success. But it doesn’t stop there. We bring that same spirit and drive to our pro bono work, and to supporting our legal, business, and local communities.
M&S has received national recognition for excellence in law, and has been named for the last 6 years to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Law Firms” list. Bringing an influential voice to consumer protection matters, our attorneys are regularly called upon to provide counsel to Fortune 100 companies, advocate before regulatory bodies, and serve as general counsel to leading industry associations.
