Government Relations

Government can have positive and negative impacts on all business endeavors. Lindsay Hart’s lobbying, regulatory and administrative practice frequently solves problems and avoids hurdles that impede client objectives.


We take a comprehensive approach to addressing clients’ lobbying objectives. With focus on the client’s business environment and specific needs, we provide strategy and counsel on a wide variety of legislative and substantive matters. Our Government Relations/Regulatory Group offers the experience to help companies navigate today’s complex legislative and regulatory environment. Our team has experience and contacts to deal with any challenge and will develop your strategy to take advantage of opportunities, overcome obstacles, and educate policymakers at the local, state and federal level.


We operate directly in the legislative arena and coordinate and direct lobbying efforts for our clients. Our legislative work includes monitoring for statutory or regulatory changes or problems for our business clients, drafting and reviewing legislation of interest to clients, preparing client arguments on draft legislation, advising clients on the construction and effect of proposed or pending legislation, gathering intelligence impacting clients, and providing strategic and political guidance and advice.


Working in Salem, Portland or through its full-time Washington, D.C., office, Lindsay Hart  provides effective, seasoned representation of local, regional and national clientele.
