Nossaman Expands DC Office, Government Relations & Regulation Group with William Powers

Nossaman News Release

Washington, DC — Nossaman LLP has expanded its Washington, DC office and Government Relations & Regulation Group with the addition of William Powers.

William’s practice focuses on campaign finance, lobbying, government ethics and investigations. He represents high-profile individuals, corporations, political committees (including ballot measure committees and Super PACs) as well as foundations and non-profits, such as charities, social welfare organizations and trade associations. He also handles allegations of election law and other public corruption laws that involve parallel criminal and civil proceedings. Before entering private practice, William served almost a decade in the Office of the General Counsel at the Federal Election Committee (FEC), where he was the Assistant General Counsel for Enforcement. In this role, he handled some of the agency’s most complex matters, including those involving presidential campaigns, 501(c)(4) organizations and advocacy groups active in federal elections. As a former enforcement official, William understands how to navigate the complex and overlapping campaign and lobbying regimes, but he also places a premium on avoiding complaints to begin with through clear and proactive compliance advice.

Nossaman's Government Relations & Regulation Group helps firm clients achieve successful outcomes in areas of focus including infrastructure, energy, healthcare and related environmental issues. The Group includes senior Congressional Staff, and past senior officials at the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highways Administration, Department of Justice, Federal Election Commission and DHS. The Firm’s policy advisors and attorneys have developed and maintained excellent relationships on both sides of the legislative aisle and with administration offices in Washington, DC and Sacramento. 

William added that the Firm’s "impeccable reputation in the public policy space, coupled with its national reach made it a great fit. I am excited by the opportunities and resources the Firm can provide our clients."
