Our Arizona government relations team is active at all levels of government. From the Capitol to City Hall to the federal government – we know the inner workings of the legislature and the agencies that regulate your business.
Our experienced lawyers and lobbyists have been actively involved with some of the biggest legislative initiatives and economic development projects in Arizona. This group knows politics, policy-making, and the complexities of working with the Arizona Legislature.
The strength of our team comes from our in-depth understanding of the legislative process and the need to build relationships with the Legislative Branch and the Executive Branch. While building these relationships, we actively collaborate with agency staff and other stakeholders involved in the implementation of legislation to help our clients achieve their goals.
We understand the procedures and regulations of the state and federal agencies and how to maneuver through these systems. Our experience turns your questions into answers and helps change what can be a confusing set of rules into compliance success.
We do more than just help develop policy and advocate or oppose the passage of laws and rules. Our work begins with understanding your business and how your compliance obligations impact your operations. Equipped with this information, we use our knowledge and experience to identify solutions and strategies that help you achieve your goals.
