Advocating on Regulatory Issues
Our goal is to work with government officials on behalf of our clients by putting our knowledge and experience into action. In addition to traditional lobbying, we often serve as liaisons with regulatory agencies and licensing boards. This includes working with state and local agencies after legislation has gone into effect during the rule-making process to determine the best way to implement specifics of the legislation. There are many stages of government relations and public policy. With years of experience, our team knows what it takes to be successful in all areas of government.
