Kleinbard’s Political Law team represents clients in all facets of politics and government, and works in close conjunction with our Government Relations practice. Our clients range from government officials and corporations engaged in the political process, to candidates and individuals seeking to comply with regulatory requirements. Our lawyers have a unique understanding of the intersection of legal compliance and practical reality. We work with our political and government clients to craft commonsense solutions, navigate the law and deliver results.
Because political activity is highly regulated, candidates and elected officials often face legal issues that require unique experience handling. From campaign financing to ballot contentions, our attorneys work with a broad range of private and public-sector clients to assist them in navigating the political process. We advise federal, state, and local candidates, political parties, PACs, super PACs, independent expenditure committees, individual donors, associations, non-profits and corporations on structuring political advocacy and ensuring compliance with laws and regulations.
However, our services do not end once an election comes to a close. We serve public officials and governmental employees throughout the lifecycle of their political careers. We have specific experience assisting with ballot access issues and petition challenges, and worked closely with candidates during the 2020 election to challenge the validity of election results and urge for more clear regulations regarding mail-in ballots for future elections. And, if legal issues arise later in a client’s political career, our team is fully prepared to provide representation in complex, constitutional, civil, criminal, and personal matters. In each matter, we utilize our specialized legal acumen, media savvy, and political sensibility to achieve the most favorable results for our clients.
