Lobbying

Government often plays a substantial role in business and, ultimately, the bottom line. Regardless of whether you are forming or expanding a business, seeking zoning or land use changes, running a highly regulated business, or needing help in securing procurement contracts with the government, it's imperative that you work with attorneys who have the first-hand knowledge and experience that can only be gained by professionals who have spent years drafting, reviewing and voting on legislation.

Greenspoon Marder's lobbying practice is led by former Florida Senate Minority Leader Steve Geller, who spent 20 years in the state legislature. In fact, several of our lawyers have held elected and/or appointed positions and have experience working in local government at many levels, including a former mayor, city attorney, and assistant city and county attorneys. We have drafted legislation, ordinances, requests for zoning and land use changes, and procurement documents. We have represented clients at the city, county, state, and federal levels in front of legislative staff and appointed and elected officials and judges, in legislative, judicial, and quasi-judicial hearings.
