Government Law and Lobbying – at the state level in Florida and the federal level in Washington – has been a core practice for Becker since its founding in 1973. Our team of lawyers and lobbyists includes several who have served in high-level government positions and distinguished themselves in the political and legislative arenas and in state, local and federal government. Our team includes former and current city attorneys, former and current elected officials, former legislative aides to Florida legislators, former chiefs of staff to U.S. Congressmen in Washington, D.C., and campaign managers for a myriad of elected officials. This first-hand working knowledge of government, at every level, provides clients with valuable insights and understanding of the legislative, administrative, and regulatory processes, and helps clients navigate the maze of government.
The racial, ethnic, gender and political diversity of our lobbying team provides our clients with the distinct advantage of working with an array of legislators from both sides of the aisle as well as the various caucuses. The team’s varied relationships and knowledge of different issues offers clients new opportunities for coalition building with like-minded groups and connections to lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. This diversity, along with the backing of over 130+ lawyers and other professionals throughout the firm, is part of our formula for success. The Becker team enjoys the resources of being part of a large law firm but operates like a “boutique” lobbying practice, providing clients with personal attention and “on call” availability. Like all highly functioning teams, our team members rely on each other’s unique set of political contacts, knowledge of various issues, and political intelligence to best serve the client in a collaborative way.
