Holtzman Vogel’s Government Ethics Compliance Group provides counsel regarding federal, state, and local ethics laws. These rules govern the actions of parties engaged in political activity, fundraising, government relations, grassroots and direct lobbying, and procurement. Many in our group previously served in government where they enforced ethics rules and help shape the rules applicable to our clients today.
Ethics rules require complex public disclosure, coordination with multiple reporting entities, compliance with audit rules, monitoring of rules changes, and careful compilation of required data. Our clients are highly scrutinized and retain our lawyers to limit the chance of issues that lead to enforcement actions. Public disclosures are also consistently the foundation of opposition research and media focus and often form the basis for businesses to mount serious attacks against competitors.
Failure to comply in any of these categories has increasingly devastating consequences, legally, financially, and reputationally. Clients seek our expertise to design and implement best practices and establish processes to ensure that ethics compliance is carefully managed.
Our clients include:
- Fortune 500 corporations
- Lobbying firms
- Law firms
- Consulting firms
- Non-profit entities
