Our Political Law group provides bipartisan expertise to clients engaged in political activity at all levels of government.  Our team has extensive experience advising on compliance matters, including campaign finance, lobbying and government ethics laws; election laws; the tax implications of political activity; and the reputational risks associated with political activity. 

The Political Law group serves a broad client base, including corporations, trade groups, nonprofits, political organizations and public as well as private individuals.  Our goal is to maximize the scope and effectiveness of our clients' political activities by ensuring they are fully compliant with federal, state and local law.  Here are some of the ways we help our political law clients:

  • Our attorneys audit clients’ political activity programs and develop compliance policies, procedures and training programs to help ensure that clients’ campaign, advocacy, fundraising and other political initiatives comply with all applicable laws.
  • We establish federal and state political actions committees (PACs), advocacy groups and other entities for our clients, and advise them on soliciting and making contributions, their reporting obligations and member/donor confidentiality. 
  • We provide advice to clients regarding compliance with federal and state lobbying and gift laws, and prepare, review and submit disclosure reports to regulators. 
  • We represent individuals and organizations in rulemaking proceedings and other advisory opinion request proceedings.
  • We have extensive experience representing clients in audits and investigations conducted by federal agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Election Commission, Government Accountability Office, Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission, as well as the United States Congress, and various state and local regulatory agencies.  

Our Political Law group has the experience, expertise, knowledge and judgment to help ensure that our clients are fully compliant with all applicable laws and rules in today’s era of heightened scrutiny of political activity.
