Government Affairs & Public Policy

Lewis Brisbois’ Government Affairs & Public Policy Practice is a versatile, multidisciplinary practice group staffed by strategic attorneys who advocate on behalf of clients across several highly regulated industries by leveraging a rare combination of skills and experience to provide powerful solutions at the intersection of law, policy and politics.

We achieve powerful results for clients as lawyers, lobbyists and policy consultants through a combination of cutting-edge work in Washington, D.C. and coordinated outreach into states that are active on key policy issues.

The Practice’s clients include both small startups and large multinational corporations across the biopharmaceutical, health care, natural products, and technology sectors, as well as other highly regulated industries. Our attorneys “see the whole chess board,” working with clients to move the pieces to advance and protect their interests and promote social change at every level of government — federal, state, local or international. We work with industry leaders, stakeholders and all branches of government — executive, legislative, and judicial. We know which pieces to move, and when and how to execute. ​We help clients engage early to advance goals — to create opportunity or minimize risk.

We regularly assist clients in the following areas:  

·       Representation before Congress, federal agencies, and state regulatory authorities  

·       Legal, policy, political, and public relations strategic counseling 

·       Engagement with federal and state policymakers 

·       Congressional oversight, inquiries, investigations, and subpoenas 

·       State AG investigations 

·       Federal funding and authorizations  

·       Preparation of key legislation impacting clients’ businesses  

·       Campaign finance issues 

·       Promotion of social equity goals 

Moreover, our attorneys regularly collaborate with other practices across Lewis Brisbois’ nationwide network so that clients are able to access the comprehensive knowledge and experience that our attorneys offer.
