A Better Approach to Public Affairs Consulting.Learn More
Consulting + Legal Services
Our Full Service Solution
The Griffin Company’s approach to public policy and government affairs consulting is firmly rooted in the concepts of honesty, trust, and integrity. This is the foundation upon which meaningful and lasting relationships are built and from which effective communication may occur with policymakers. A framework is then in place for the education and advancement of client issues.
The complexity of today’s issues often dictates that concerns do not fall neatly within the jurisdictional boundaries of local, state or federal governments. More often than not, client issues affect and are affected by rules and regulations of various levels of government. Likewise, the politics associated with the relevant policymakers often spill over their jurisdictional boundaries. Consequently, a complete government affairs practice must be able to effectively navigate through all levels of government, both with the laws and regulations as well as with an understanding of and sensitivity to the politics associated with each issue. The Griffin Company provides clients with the breadth of experience – local, state, and federal – that enables a comprehensive approach integrating policy and relationships at all levels of government.
The firm takes pride in being the only Nevada law firm specializing in political law. The firm guides clients through the increasingly complex array of laws governing the political process and government relations, and places a particular emphasis on ballot initiatives, state and local administrative procedures, election law, campaign finance, constitutional law, and related litigation. The firm understands the politics of legislative and administrative legal processes, and where, when, and how to advocate for the firm's clients’ interests to secure the ideal outcome.
Clients often include corporations, trade associations, political groups, PACs, and individuals looking for legal advice. All clients can expect expert guidance based on the unparalleled experience and unique knowledge possessed by the law firm.
