We are actively engaged in counseling clients on current legislative and regulatory issues that affect government contractors. Driven by the wide array of goods and services our clients sell to federal, state, and local governments, as well as governmental agencies, our lawyers keep abreast of policy initiatives, new legislative bills, and regulatory proposals from the time that they first surface. Developments in e-business and new commercial item legislation are recent examples.

Keeping in Touch

Our lawyers have excellent relationships and contacts with key decision makers in the executive and legislative branches. Several of them have served in senior government positions before joining Crowell & Moring, and they maintain their contacts with key incumbents.

Strategy, Analysis, and Action

Our legislative representations include headline cases, single client matters, and, most often, coalitions of companies or trade associations that share a common concern. The focus of our work is the key congressional committees with jurisdiction over the matter at issue, and our activities include:

  • Drafting critical legislative language
  • Preparing detailed legal analyses or shorter rationales to support or oppose proposed legislation
  • Preparing talking points for lawyers and lobbyists
  • Developing strategic lobbying plans and lobbying members of key committees

Testimony Plus

We help clients prepare for testifying before federal and state legislative committees. We conduct mock hearings during which the witness practices and refines his or her testimony, and firm lawyers pose questions to the witness assuming the demeanor of members of the particular committee. We also prepare "Dear Colleague" letters, floor statements, and op-ed pieces.
