Attorneys in our Government Relations Practice ensure clients have the knowledge and access they need to help achieve their objectives, whether they involve ratifying, defeating, or revising pending legislation or regulations; obtaining financial assistance for new or expanding projects; or promoting government agencies’ use of client products or services.

We have close, bipartisan relationships at all levels of government from town halls and state capitals to the federal government. Teaming this access and experience with our creative, client-centered culture gives our clients an influential, effective advocate in the halls of government.

Our attorneys work to address clients’ problems through legislative or administrative action. We are familiar with evaluating the issues our clients face, and we understand the procedures for addressing these issues. Our attorneys have counseled clients on a wide range of governmental matters. We consult with officials; draft legislation, rules, and regulations; and advance proposals through contact with appropriate governmental bodies.
