On-Demand Legal and Compliance Advice (the “Help Desk”)

We will provide answers to your inquiries in a manner that takes into account your specific business operations and objectives; we don’t provide you with “canned” responses.  Orchid Law’s personnel and associated consulting firms have not only served their clients in the firearms industry, they have all been employed by firearms manufacturers, distributors, and retailers.  They understand the business-side of complying with the law and endeavor to serve their clients in a fashion that impedes business as minimally as possible.


Inspection Readiness and Facility Visit


Not all retail environments are alike.  Writing A&D Book entries and Forms submitted to ATF are only a fraction of the daily tasks that will impact compliance.  Employee responsibilities, security, POS systems, and other daily activities will all have some impact on whether your company is in full compliance with the law.  Orchid Law will visit your site and design a plan to continuously improve your compliance.


ATF Representation and Inspection Support

Don’t stand before the government unarmed.  If you had an inspection that did not go your way and you find yourself at a warning conference or revocation proceeding with your license at risk our attorneys will represent you at no additional cost.[1]



If ATF shows up at your door you will be prepared with our FFL Keys to Compliance™  and company policies.  However, if you momentarily forget or you are unsure of what to do you can contact us immediately.  If desired, we can arrange to be on site as soon as reasonably possible[2] or we can walk you through the process step by step.  Our professionals have extensive experience with ATF inspections and have been involved in inspections comprised of hundreds of thousands of serial numbers, tens of thousands of records, and decades of ATF paperwork.

State Firearm Regulations

Believe it or not, the laws in a State across the country can affect your compliance.  Beyond that, they can affect your sales opportunities.  Orchid Law will provide you with information on pending state legislation across the country.  Although any firearms law may affect business in some way, Orchid Law is the only firm which focuses exclusively on legislation that directly affects firearms businesses so you don’t have to comb through hundreds of bills that have no effect on your business.
