Upstart Ballard poised to become a top lobbying firm

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Monday, August 21, 2017

Ballard Partners, which branched out into federal lobbying work just a few months ago, is poised to leverage its White House access to become one of the top lobbying firms by year's end. 

Ballard signed two new clients last week, bringing its total number of new clients this year to 41. By contrast, Akin Gump, currently the top lobbying firm and with dozens of lobbyists and decades of having a top reputation, has signed 37 new clients this year.

Podesta Group files as foreign agent for Saudi group

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Friday, August 18, 2017

The Podesta Group has finally registered as a foreign agent on behalf of a notorious Saudi campaign, ending speculation as to whether the group was flouting Justice Department disclosure rules.

The Saudi American Public Relation Affairs Committee began its campaign this summer, running television and other media ads that accuse the Gulf country of supporting terrorism. The Podesta Group, which helped to produce the ads, registed as a foreign agent on SAPRAC's behalf this week, days after the Daily Beast wrote that the campaign "may have skirted U.S. lobbying laws."

I have found LegiStorm essential for my job and quite surprising in its capabilities. For an arts presentation I needed to give on Capitol Hill, I was able to automatically download key arts staffers associated with all members of the Congressional Arts Caucus. I also able to find staff with "art" in their education backgrounds, so they got invited too. Definitely fun, and useful.

We have found LegiStorm to be the ultimate tool in communicating with congressional offices, either individually or with a group. We have been able to reach out with messages to all chiefs of staff and legislative directors, or staff dedicated to specific areas. We believe that this ability was instrumental in passing two key pieces of legislation which were imperative to our members.

The data provided by LegiStorm stands out as the best Congressional data available. The accuracy and organization of LegiStorm's data has meant that I've been able to greatly speed up progress on my research. I have no hesitation in recommending LegiStorm to all types of researchers, journalists, lobbyists and other political professionals.
