We guide businesses through the complexities of state government regulations using our political access to the highest decision makers in the state, draft legislative and administrative language strong enough to withstand legal challenges and develop campaign strategies and solutions to impact decisions that affect your bottom line. Pioneering change and fostering growth for businesses is our hallmark.

Politics & Policy

Relationships matter and we have built solid connections on both sides of the political aisle. With extensive experience throughout the political arena, we advocate on your behalf. Our government affairs attorneys are top lobbyists, legislative aides and advocates with decades of experience, and relationships throughout federal, state and local government. Our attorneys take the time to educate decision makers to ensure they are well-informed on your issues. They will navigate the red tape to make your voice heard. We invite you to learn more about our practice:

Lobbying & Compliance

Your initiatives are our priority. With decades of experience in government relations and advocacy, we’ll help you stay on top of the issues that matter most to your business. As zealous, but respected, advocates, our attorneys know how to get things done. If you determine the best strategy is to monitor legislation we can send you legislative updates, or develop legislation that advances and protects your business interests; we will draft it, and help guide it through the legislative process.

Campaign Finance

Campaign finance is a complex area filled with potential pitfalls. Running for office, donating to candidates, forming a PAC, all require a clear strategy and a budget that aligns with your aspirations. We’ll help you create a campaign finance game plan to meet your financial goals, adhere to ethical standards, track incoming support, document expenses, and comply with all regulations.

Legislative & Regulatory Drafting

Government officials and agencies often speak in a language of their own. We understand that language and can draft proposals and regulatory legislation that speaks to lawmakers and withstands legal challenges. No matter the cause, we have the political acumen to represent your interests and drive results.

State Procurement

Bidding for state contracts is much more complicated than simply developing and submitting a proposal. We will connect you to the right opportunities, work with you to understand the procurement process, and create access to the key decision makers to form the right alliances. We have the legal expertise to represent your interests during the bid debrief and bid protest process. Entering the arena of state procurement takes time, research, preparation, and a willingness to invest in cultivating relationships with the state agency decision makers, we understand that role and will work with you to develop a winning strategy that will set you apart from your competition.
