Jumped to No. 2 Federal Lobbying Firm in Just 20 Years - Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck

Brownstein Tops List of Federal Lobbying Firms

No matter what the type of organization, playing an active role in the political decision-making process and policy formation is no longer a luxury—it is an imperative.

Since 1995, Brownstein’s Washington, D.C. office has grown from a one-man shop to the largest firm by revenue in the United States. Brownstein has been a top 10 lobbying firm for a decade and in 2019 we earned our first No. 1 place on the list of federal lobbying firms, based on revenue. From a combination of intelligent targeting, client retention, client referrals, smart hires and our professionals’ drive, we continue to see growth. We’re proud to represent some of the most high-profile clients to bring their issues before Congress and have confronted head-on some of the biggest challenges facing our country.

For a Denver-based law firm, Brownstein’s status as a top lobbying firm is unprecedented. We credit our talented team for consistently delivering results, even when the odds are stacked against us.

  • Top talent. Brownstein’s federal government relations group boasts professionals with experience working in senior-most capacities on Capitol Hill, in the Executive Branch and in government agencies.
  • Bipartisan experience. Our team draws on decades of experience working on both sides of the political aisle, and on the insights and connectivity that go with it. From former U.S. senators to presidential appointees, Brownstein’s Government Relations team is comprised of Republican and Democratic heavy-hitters.
  • Policy junkies. Because of the diverse backgrounds of our team, we stay on the cutting edge of the latest legislative debates. We get involved early in expanding areas of public policy and keep our clients informed and up-to-date on key information about how laws and regulations will impact their business goals.
