Advocacy groups, labor organizations and charities aiming to influence Congress, state legislatures and executive branch officials at all levels of government rely on our lawyers to navigate the labyrinth of lobbying, ethics and advocacy rules. We routinely counsel clients on how to undertake their direct and grassroots advocacy; how to structure and fund their lobbying activities; how to comply with reporting and disclosure requirements; and in all respects how to comply with federal law, including the Lobbying Disclosure Act and the Foreign Agents Registration Act, congressional and executive branch ethics rules, and state lobbying and ethics laws.
We have advised all of the following kinds of organizations on lobbying and governmental ethics requirements. Those rules, and related tax and campaign finance laws, apply differently to each, requiring specially tailored legal approaches that also take into account a group’s own special capabilities, needs and goals.
