As regulator, client, opponent or partner, governments significantly affect the way we live, work and do business.

Our firm has its roots in Lou de la Parte’s conviction that government must serve all people fairly and efficiently. Because we understand the rules, the players and the politics that shape decision making, we help our clients craft effective strategies utilizing every available regulatory, legislative and judicial tool.
