Public Policy & Regulation

The federal government plays many roles in the business community, ranging from regulator to customer, competitor, advocate or adversary, among others. Political shifts result in changes to policies, laws and regulations.  These changes can have a critical impact on your business both now and in the future.

Verdant attorneys have broad experience in providing effective assistance to clients seeking to affect public policy.  Verdant combines attorneys with a comprehensive understanding of the federal policy and regulatory process with public policy specialists experienced in the substance and politics of the issue at hand.

As your advocates, we help you shape public policy decisions through careful, strategic positioning. While we are not lobbyists, our combined experience of over 60 years as Washington practitioners enables us to pinpoint the lobbying resources needed for any particular case, and to craft a winning team composed of Verdant attorneys and specialists from lobbying firms.

Verdant attorneys also have substantial experience testifying before Congressional committees and assisting clients who do so.  The combined experience of our team enables us to provide our clients with crucial legal advice in complex policy areas and with access to key decision-makers from both parties.
