Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck Sees Surge in Federal Lobbying Revenues - Firm Reports 44 Percent Increase in Revenues for Federal Lobbying

Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck expanded its federal lobbying practice revenues by 44 percent, including the addition of 10 clients, in the second quarter of this year compared to first quarter earnings. The firm reported Q2 revenues of $5,420,000 for federal lobbying efforts.

“The second quarter was one of record growth for us,” said Al Mottur, managing partner of Brownstein’s Washington, D.C., office. “While our new clients span a range of industries from energy to healthcare to telecommunications, many share a common thread – an increased desire to engage policymakers in this heightened political climate in Washington. I believe we were able to take advantage of this for the same reasons we have grown in the past: referrals for new business from existing clients, expansion of existing client business, and a growing reputation of our tremendous team for their relationship and substantive expertise.”

Brownstein’s 2009 mid-year revenue of $9,180,000 is up 33 percent over the firm’s federal lobbying revenue at mid-year 2008 of $6,910,000. Additional numbers of note:

  • 2009 First quarter lobbying revenues: $3,760,000
  • 2008 Total lobbying revenue: $14,690,000
  • 2008 Mid-Year lobbying revenue: $6,910,000
  • 2007 Total lobbying revenue: $13,650,000
  • 2006 Total lobbying revenue: $11,180,000
  • 21 new clients added since mid-year 2008
  • Four consecutive years of growth in federal lobbying revenues

The numbers for the second quarter of 2009 have been filed as part of the quarterly filing requirements under the federal Lobbying Disclosure Act.
