McGlinchey’s Government Relations, Contracts, and Lobbying Group has extensive experience representing public and private companies, organizations, and individuals conducting business with the government at all levels, as well as those requiring interaction with regulatory and administrative authorities.
We provide guidance to government contractors and governmental entities in the broad array of special issues that arise when contracting with local, state, or federal government.
Our team takes clients’ issues personally. The relationships we forge with them are built on mutual respect, which enables our lawyers to apply a true “we” model as we collaborate on legal-business matters. To do this, we work hard to fully understand a client’s enterprise from their guiding business philosophy to their daily operations. Once we know the client’s business inside-out, we can craft a strategy and use our governmental credibility, connections, and coalitions to help the client procure a contract, influence legislation, resolve disputes, and otherwise achieve their goals.
While we bring many attributes to our practice, clients say three particularly stand out:
- Because our lawyers and lobbyists are steeped in the various issues that affect a wide range of economic sectors, we draw on our industry knowledge in handling our clients’ matters.
- In addition to our close working relationships with people inside the government, our highly regarded reputation opens doors, which is especially helpful with contracts. Regulators trust us and often stop and initiate conversations with our lobbyists on the House floor.
- Many law firms say their lawyers collaborate with one another, but too often that’s not the case. Their compensation systems encourage The Silo Effect, in which attorneys keep to themselves. McGlinchey’s culture and business model do not tolerate that. We work together very well and can call a colleague in another practice area to get a quick answer on a client’s matter – and we do that every day.
