Polsinelli has established itself as a major influential law and public policy firm in the nation’s capital since opening its Washington, D.C. office in 2005. Our bipartisan team is comprised of two former Members of Congress, both of whom served in leadership positions within their respective party, and former executive branch officials and senior congressional staff in advising our clients on appropriations, budget, health care, education, immigration, and tax policy, as well as First Amendment advertising and media law. The Federal Public Policy practice represents a diverse range of clients that include Fortune 500 corporations, national broadcast and cable networks, food manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, national construction firms, along with businesses and executives who need our guidance in antitrust, white collar crime, and regulatory litigation.
Our Federal Public Policy practice has directed multiple efforts to defeat federal government proposals to tax or regulate the content of commercial advertising. They have secured government approval of new and innovative medicines and medical devices, and they have stopped a national tax on the sale of broadcast stations.
Our State Public Policy professionals are located in a number of Polsinelli offices, including the capital cities of Topeka and Jefferson City. Together, they bring decades of experience in state and local regulatory and administrative law matters, regulation of corporate and business and utility activities in insurance, energy, transportation, health care, construction, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, consumer product regulation, economic development, and gaming businesses.
