Mayer Brown's Government Relations practice has earned international recognition for using sophisticated political experience and leading-edge legal knowledge to help shape policy, legislation and regulations in the United States, Europe and key countries and regions around the world. The lawyers, lobbyists and other professionals in our group are strategic thinkers who help clients to build and leverage sound positions that advance their domestic and global public policy goals.
Although our team enjoys access to every level of government, we understand that access is not a strategy. Rather, access is opportunity: an opportunity to change the entire regulatory and legislative landscape in a rapidly changing global marketplace. Our group has extensive experience in the following areas:
- Communications and the Internet
- Energy and Climate Change
- Financial Services
- Global Trade
- Health Care
- Legal Reform
- Oversight and Investigations
- Product Standards and Regulation
- Public Finance
- State and Local – United States
- Transportation and Infrastructure
Our Government Relations practice draws upon the extraordinary resources of the firm's lawyers located in key business centers throughout the Americas, Asia and Europe. Where needed, we also rely on the talents and insights of other professionals, both inside and outside the firm, with experience in media relations, economics, public opinion polling, grassroots consultations and other disciplines. We know government, the law and political realities, and we effectively use that knowledge to advance our clients' interests.
