Holtzman Vogel’s Lobbying & Grassroots Advocacy Group provides counsel to Fortune 500 companies, consulting firms, law firms, and trade associations regarding federal, state, and local lobbying laws. Our attorneys have expertise in gift rules, registration, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements.
Our clients include:
- Corporations (including Fortune 500 corporations)
- Lobbying firms
- Law firms
- Consulting firms
- Non-profit entities
- Coalition groups
- Trade associations
We provide experienced guidance to clients in federal, state, and local audit matters as well as and investigations. Many of our attorneys previously served in government where they crafted and enforced ethics rules, allowing them to provide in-depth knowledge to clients on the rules for lobbyist interaction.
Our attorneys also counsel elected officials at all levels of government on how they can engage with lobbyists and political groups without running afoul of the law. We also counsel government contractors on how to engage with officeholders to avoid violations of law or conflicts that may jeopardize their government contracts.
Lobbyist disclosures and reports are routinely targets of opposition research and clients often seek to engage with policy makers in ways that safely avoid complex lobbying rules. Our attorneys help clients map out strategies to engage in productive policy dialogues without triggering lobbying laws and their increasingly onerous registration, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements.
Our attorneys also organize and guide purpose-built coalitions, trade associations, and 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations -- along with their supporters and donors — as they engage in activity to influence federal, state, and local policy. We also advise on compliance strategies for these organizations to effectively engage in grassroots campaigns aligned with their objectives.
