FEDERAL ETHICS TRAINING & BEST PRACTICE IMPLEMENTATION
We provide counsel to clients with the establishment of model compliance programs on local, state and federal Congressional and executive branch gift limitation statutes and rules. We conduct training for lobbyists and outside consultants on information required to be reported, and on related ethics restrictions. We offer counsel on adopting formal policies for employees, and consultants, as appropriate, which would govern their interactions with any elected or appointed official, including time sheets, LDA expense checklists and other tools for compliance. We also provide regular updates on federal and state law changes.
For new clients, we recommend a review of current lobbyist registrations and reporting at the federal and state levels. Our depth of experience at the federal, state and local levels make us well positioned to identify potential issues in connection with lobbying activities, such as the potential ethics exposure from any proposed advocacy initiatives.
Our lawyers represent clients in investigations before the House Committee on Ethics, the House Committee on Oversight and Investigations, the Senate Select Committee on Ethics, the Office of Congressional Ethics, and the United States Department of Justice as well as before local and state investigative bodies. Our representation in this arena is enhanced through close coordination with attorneys in our White Collar Defense group.
