GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS / LOBBYING
DJP understands that not every client issue can be resolved through negotiation or litigation. Sometimes resolution can only be achieved by legislation and regulation. DJP’s Government Affairs and Lobbying team has decades of experience in providing government and political advice, introducing clients to relevant government officials – both elected and appointed, and in lobbying elected and appointed officials for the passage or defeat of positive or adverse legislation or regulation. We are capable of taking a holistic view of a problem where we develop a strategy, draft legislation, find a sponsor and assist lobbying the legislation through the legislative process, including through the veto authority of the executive branch.
DJP is also called upon to provide analysis and advice concerning pending legislation, secure an appropriation, amend legislation or defeat legislation. DJP’s attorneys know the political process, have developed long-standing relationships with elected and appointed government officials, and maintain unsurpassed credibility with those involved in the process.
