Our Policy and Politics Practice

Practicing at the intersection of law and public policy, for decades we have represented clients in the political and policy-making arenas.  Our lawyers have worked inside and outside government on some of the most consequential public policy matters in modern Oregon history.  That experience pairs strategic savvy with technical know-how to navigate the legal, political, and governmental landscape in pursuit of our clients’ goals.

Government Relations and Strategies

When businesses, trade groups, and other organizations are faced with regulatory and legal hurdles, they look to our firm for government relations strategies to navigate around those barriers to accomplish their objectives.

Political Law

Our Political Law practice group represents participants in the political process on matters including:

  • Government Ethics
  • Lobbying Regulation
  • Election Law
  • Campaign Finance Regulation
  • Initiative & Referendum

Constitutional Law

We are often called upon to give our opinion on the correct interpretation of the Oregon and United States Constitutions to local governments and the Oregon legislature, and we have successfully litigated state and federal constitutional issues in state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.
