Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck reports $7,240,000 for its first-quarter 2018 federal lobbying revenues. 2018’s first quarter outpaces both 2016 and 2017 first quarter numbers by nearly seven percent and eight percent, respectively.
“We registered a number of new clients in the first quarter of this year which makes us optimistic about the outlook for 2018,” said Elizabeth Gore, Brownstein’s government relations department chair. “We have several strong new hires that expanded our bipartisan bench and these new additions will help to serve our existing clients and grow our portfolio.” Gore continued, “The fourth quarter of 2017 was phenomenal for us in large part due to the tax reform bill. We’d normally expect to see a slow down as we move into the mid-term election cycle, but this political climate is unlike anything we’ve seen before so we’re advising companies to stay engaged here in Washington.”
The numbers for the first quarter of 2018 were filed today as part of the quarterly filing requirements under the federal Lobbying Disclosure Act.
