Kelley Drye has maintained a strong government relations practice ever since, offering comprehensive guidance and a range of services that include:

  • Legislative Advocacy. Our team emphasizes the key components of a successful legislative advocacy campaign - deep industry knowledge combined with strategic policy and legal insight. The group's efforts range from day-to-day issue monitoring and outreach to the development and implementation of major campaigns for clients, often working to identify and involve key stakeholders and develop coalitions.  Kelley Drye has a proven ability to pursue a single objective through multiple forums, using law, economics, government relations, public relations and grassroots advocacy to achieve client goals.

  • Regulatory Law Experience & Counseling. We represent clients before the federal agencies, where decisions on the implementation, promulgation and enforcement of regulations can have an enormous impact on our clients' businesses. Our team of attorneys and government relations professionals specialize in representing clients in all aspects of compliance, including challenges with complicated political processes.

  • Campaign Finance & Political Law. We advise diverse corporations, trade associations and labor organizations on all aspects of government ethics, lobbying and campaign finance and election law compliance at the federal, state and local levels.

  • Uncovering Business Opportunities with Government Agencies. We sort through the myriad of U.S. government agencies and funding or contract opportunities to identify the best prospects for our clients.  We have many years of experience, particularly in the high technology industry and energy sectors, on tracking agency budgets, identifying departments with relevant funding, making contacts with officials, tracking legislative developments, and participating in events to gather intelligence about programs that create opportunities for our clients to sell their products.  We leverage our relationships at the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Energy, and the Department of Commerce, as well as other agencies, to help our clients win business.
