Government Affairs/Lobbying

It is very important to have and maintain positive relationships with the state and federal entities that oversee your business or your industry.  If this relationship falls into disrepair, it is very easy to find yourself in a “gotcha game” or in constant non-compliance.  We understand the value of good relationships with state and federal entities and we know what they are looking for from you.  There is no reason to start out on the wrong foot and get into a bad situation that can make your existence difficult.  We will work with you to ensure you start on the right foot from the beginning or will come in and help repair broken relationships with state and federal entities.
