Government Affairs


With a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory and parliamentary process, we develop a strategic plan tailored for each client to successfully navigate the complex process required to reach their regulatory or policy goals


Meaningful engagement with policymakers and staff is key to legislative success. Because their time is valuable, we approach each meeting with razor-sharp focus to carefully articulate why certain legislation is beneficial or detrimental to our client’s business, industry, or the state of Texas.


Thousands of bills and amendments are filed every legislative session. With over fifteen years of legislative tracking experience, we utilize technology and organizational skills to carefully monitor legislation and hearings, as well as the rule-making process that occurs during the legislative session and the interim.
