Firm reports 15 percent increase in revenues for federal lobbying
In the third quarter of 2009, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck’s federal lobbying practice saw its revenues increase by 15 percent, including the addition of 11 clients, compared to second quarter earnings. The firm reported third quarter revenue of $6,235,000 for federal lobbying efforts. This brings 2009 year-to-date revenues to $15,415,000, already eclipsing total lobbying revenues for fiscal year 2008.
Brownstein’s 2009 third quarter revenue of $6,235,000 is up 54 percent over the firm’s federal lobbying revenue in third quarter 2008 of $4,025,000.
“With the flurry of legislative and regulatory activity related to healthcare, the financial industry and climate change, we have seen an influx of work in our office allowing us to continue to buck the downward economic trend,” said Al Mottur, managing partner of Brownstein’s Washington, D.C., office. “Clients work with us because they know that our team not only possess deep connections, knowledge and experience, but also a commitment to providing stellar client service when handling the high-profile, evolving issues that we deal with daily.”
