We advise our clients on legislative and regulatory affairs as well as public policy strategies. We provide them with legislative and agency contacts, help them to establish coalitions of like-minded companies and organizations while analyzing and tracking legislation, agency actions and other political activities.

Our decades of experience working in the D.C. area have allowed us to develop significant, bipartisan contacts with Congress, federal and state government agencies and commissions. These contacts include members as well as staff people in key committees in Congress, the Treasury Department, IRS, Department of Labor, EEOC, state insurance and economic development organizations on both the state and local levels.

Our experience, resources and contacts are valuable assets for drafting advocacy materials and directly promoting and protecting the needs and interests of our clients. The materials that we compile ensure that policymakers have a comprehensive understanding of our clients’ messages and goals. To this end, we are dedicated to complementing our knowledge of legislative and regulatory processes with a technical understanding of our clients’ specific interests.

Working with the utmost deference to the spirit and letter of the law, our attorneys’ knowledge can help clients to navigate the sea of policymaking to ensure they achieve their policy and business goals.
