BakerHostetler’s Government Policy team helps clients resolve or avert federal and state policy-related concerns through legislative or administrative action. We craft legislation, advocate in opposition to legislation, and work with administrative agencies to develop or implement beneficial regulations that meet clients’ business and strategic goals.
Our results-driven team, which includes former members of Congress, a former U.S. Ambassador, former key congressional staff and former top government officials, routinely work with our clients to draft legislation, shape regulations, and ensure that our clients understand proposed or pending changes that might affect their bottom line.
We have the knowledge and skill to represent any private organization or public-sector concern in their policy needs – from Fortune 500 companies, U.S. multinational corporations and foreign corporations, to agricultural interests, professional sports teams and leagues, trade associations and other not-for-profit organizations.
We routinely help our clients respond to international government affairs problems and challenges, which often includes conducting high-level negotiations and fact-gathering in foreign countries.
Our lawyers counsel our clients on the potential impact of policy developments, and formulate solutions and shape the regulatory process so that our clients can get to “yes.”
We also represent foreign governments in the United States and abroad in issues related to trade, security, customs, culture, and government relations.
The Annual Legislative and U.S. Government Policy Seminar co-sponsored by BakerHostetler is widely considered to be Washington’s most prominent annual seminar on legislative policy developments.
