Comprehensive Communications Strategies

These days, providing effective lobbyist services involves much more than simply knowing who to talk with at the statehouse. In addition to helping clients navigate the halls of government, in Providence, our lawyers can also advise on matters involving media relations strategies. This can entail working in concert with our client’s public relations operation to communicate a coherent and consistent message.

In addition to providing governmental relations advice and services at the state level, our firm has worked extensively with municipalities and other governmental authorities, giving us familiarity with administrative and municipal law issues.
