Finding the quickest route to successful relationships between business and government is second nature to us. Because we live it every day.

We’re a multi-state team of government relations professionals. As Brown Rudnick’s regional Government Law and Strategies team, we’ve spent years in the trenches working in different roles, at all levels of government. And whether on our homecourts (Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island) or in one of the many other states where we’ve worked, we work closely with you to understand your business, from the ground up.

Hard work, elbow-to-elbow commitment and shared experiences have built strong and loyal relationships with the folks who need to understand your business. Our on-the-job history with policy-makers, legislators, regulators, journalists and others means we can help you advocate for measures that protect and expand your business.

We know that government, community and media relations are much more than knowing people. It’s about working with decision makers to accomplish an outcome satisfactory to all sides. Decision makers like working with us because we know how to get things done in a thoughtful and ethical manner. We’re proud of this reputation.

That makes Brown Rudnick the team best positioned to help you overcome roadblocks and solve your problems so that your business can thrive. Whether you need help with your initial approach, your business strategy, a critical communications problem or finding the right person to listen, our team of lobbyists, communications professionals, campaign organizers, former regulators and former elected officials is here to guide you.

People want to do business with people they know, like and trust. Get to know us.
