Public Policy, Regulatory & Government Affairs

Framing persuasive, consistent messaging in public policy.

Unraveling government processes is no small task. Political agendas and the people behind them can be complicated and complex. Companies and organizations want to affect the political landscape in a way that not only guides legislative agendas but also leads industry. Framing persuasive, consistent messages is a priority.

Our Public Policy, Regulatory & Government Affairs attorneys communicate with legislative, administrative and regulatory decision-makers to help clients advocate for favorable solutions. Taking into account short-term imperatives and long-term strategic solutions, we work side by side with clients to understand their issues, ensure a timely response and develop an action plan to maximize opportunities and counter potential problems.

Our Public Policy, Regulatory & Government Affairs attorneys have years of experience working in government and representing entities at the state and federal levels, including well-established state practices in Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Texas and Wisconsin. Our team in Washington, DC, comprises more than 30 professionals in the areas of government affairs, government contracting, international trade, government compliance, litigation and investigations, energy and transportation. 

Our affiliation with a full-suite lobbying and government affairs consultancy, Husch Blackwell Strategies, helps ensure robust government solutions for our clients.
