James G. "Jim" Cavanagh
- Senior Counsel
Whether I am helping a client obtain a tricky permit or working with the legislature to correct a law that is doing harm to a client’s business, I take great pleasure in making and utilizing connections to get things done. In my business, if you don’t have your name and your integrity, you’ve got nothing. I’ve worked hard over many years to build a great reputation and people in government know they can trust me. My clients know this as well.
Jim Cavanagh has been recognized as one of the most successful lobbyists in Michigan, bringing more than 20 years of experience in government affairs. While he works with clients across numerous industries, health care has been one particularly strong area of focus. Jim represents traded health care plans, providers and other organizations – including many that operate on a national scale and are publicly traded – before the Michigan legislature and the Department of Health and Human Services. International pharmaceutical clients, too, reply on him to advocate on their behalf within the state.
