Government Relations

Session Law Firm's Government Relations practice covers diverse industries, including healthcare, construction, and real estate.

We represent small businesses, large corporations, non-profits, and trade associations before the Council of the District of Columbia, District Government agencies, and the Executive Office of the Mayor.

Our familiarity with the legislative and regulatory process, as well as our broad knowledge of a wide range of subject matters, enables us to be effective advocates for our clients. Whether it is assisting clients in preparing for testimony or working to resolve a client’s regulatory issue, we GET THE JOB DONE!

Representative samples of District of Columbia agencies that we regularly work with are:

Representative examples of our legislative and government relations activity include:

  • Monitoring of legislative hearings and public roundtables
  • Monitoring of pending bills that impact our clients
  • Preparation of hearing testimony and delivering testimony before the Council
  • Drafting legislation to advance or defend interests of our clients
  • Analysis and advice regarding the overall political landscape within the District of Columbia
  • Meeting with Members of the Council and Executive Branch to educate and inform about our clients' issues

Further, as part of its general philosophy, the Firm has typically served clients that have limited budgets and require a leveraged approach to local, state, and federal representation, legislative services, and advocacy. In response to these needs, the Session Law Firm has developed a highly effective approach to managing advocacy and legislative services, utilizing and collaborating with highly regarded specialists and advocates from prominent Washington law firms that are involved on an as-needed basis. The Session Law Firm has worked closely with such firms as Arent FoxKutak RockHolland and Knight and Squire Patton Boggs.

The Session Law Firm’s “managed approach” results in highly effective services at a very reasonable overall cost. To effectively provide these services, the Session Law Firm is an active member of the DC Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee and Attorney Session himself is a member of the DC Bar District of Columbia Affairs Committee.
