Federal Representation

We represent clients that have matters before members of Congress and their staff from many states. We also work directly with the related Congressional committees to achieve our clients’ policy goals. Additionally, we represent our clients on regulatory matters with the various federal agencies.

We help clients establish new relationships with federal elected officials and their staffs and expand pre-existing relationships. Occasionally, our clients are faced with immediate and difficult problems that require the intervention of a member of Congress. Often, these problems are not legislative or regulatory in nature, but require prompt attention to avert an action that is being considered by the federal government. We quickly and effectively respond to such situations.

We help clients by tracking and notifying them of legislative developments that impact their business and develop strategies to affect legislation, including preparing position papers and presentations, attending relevant committee hearings and advocating issues with members of Congress and key staff.

We are especially skilled in the areas of transportation, education, biofuels, energy, municipal appropriations and grants, and environmental.
