Lobbying Compliance

Lobbying requires navigating a complex web of rules governing those activities, with each jurisdiction imposing unique rules on the people, organizations, and corporations that want to influence government-decision-making of all forms. From the Federal Lobbying Disclosure Act to the rules in small municipalities, more and more jurisdictions are increasing their oversight of lobbying activity. These rules not only apply to the traditional model of direct lobbying, but they are increasingly applied to the more non-traditional activities such as grassroots lobbying, procurement decisions, and even the small-dollar contributions of investment advisors. The Gober Group develops compliance programs for clients, advises on the rules that govern interactions with public officials and employees, and effectively advocates for our clients before lobbying regulators nationwide.
