Political law demands a different skill set. While many practice areas are narrowly focused, top-tier political lawyers must have a deep and fully integrated understanding of many areas: delicate regulatory compliance plans, high-stakes investigations and hard-hitting enforcement actions and lawsuits. In addition to their legal skills, political lawyers must have a command of media relations, government relations and electoral strategy.
Brownstein’s Political Law Group includes seasoned attorneys and policy professionals who have served as legal counsel to presidential and congressional campaigns, attorneys for government agencies and elected officials, criminal attorneys in the U.S. Department of Justice, and political staffers and strategists. Our team offers exceptional legal skills—plus the political, media and strategic skills necessary to help clients successfully plan for and resolve complex problems.
