Our Government Advocacy & Public Policy team advances the goals of corporations, associations, governments, and other organizations by understanding their interests, applying practical governmental and political experience, and leveraging bipartisan relationships to ensure clients maximize their exposure and influence in Washington. Our lobbying practice efficiently leverages the deep-seated industry and technical experience held by the 1000+ lawyers across the firm to provide government advocacy plans that are tailored to each client’s objectives. Our team includes well-known figures in public policy advocacy, each with decades of experience at the highest reaches of government, including practice co-chair Tom Spulak, Gov. Robert Ehrlich, Rep. Ander Crenshaw, Rep. Kendrick Meek, J.C. Boggs, Steve Kupka, Allison Kassir, Amirah Salaam, and George Crawford.
We also work closely with the firm’s pre-eminent Congressional investigations team known for its representation of global brands as these corporations respond to high-profile and high-stakes Congressional investigations. Led by co-chair Dan Donovan, Sally Yates, and Ted Hester, the team effectively guides clients through the unique Congressional investigations experience while minimizing the legal and public relations risk these inquiries often pose.
Our team also provides counseling and representation on executive and congressional ethics as well as election law at the state and federal levels. Team members draw upon their extensive experience with highly technical congressional procedures which can be an invaluable factor in clients’ legislative victories.
