Who We Are

The mission of the Government Affairs Practice Committee is to provide informational resources and a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding substantive areas of policy, political law and the regulation of the profession for federal, state and provincial lobbyists and government affairs practitioners, both in-house and in private practice.

Message From The Chair

Welcome to the Government Affairs Practice Committee page. I look forward to working with all of you to develop timely and informative content and provide a forum for the exchange of thoughts and ideas. This committee welcomes all practitioners who deal with government affairs in their practice, whether it be as in-house counsel, a private practitioner or as a government employee. This committee is an excellent resource for government affairs practitioners, and I encourage all members to become active and involved. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas, please feel free to contact me at any time. My email is and my phone number is (518)434-4377.

Mark your calendars for the Annual Business Law Section meeting. The Annual Meeting will take place from September 13 - 15, 2018 in Austin, TX.

We hope you will enjoy and review our newsletter that was just released. It is the April 2018 issue available on this page. We are always looking for content, so if you have something you would like to submit, we welcome your material.
