POSTAL RATES AND REGULATIONS

Thompson Coburn’s Postal attorneys represent magazine publishers and other clients whose business is affected by postal rates and regulations, including in legislation related to the publishing industry. This representation includes participating in proceedings before the Postal Regulatory Commission, assisting mailers with postal regulations and in administrative proceedings before the United States Postal Service, representing publishing industry clients by serving on the joint Postal Service/industry committees and task forces, and providing legislative counseling.

Our group also works closely with the firm’s Government Contracts attorneys to assist clients that contract, or would like to contract, with the Postal Service.
