Government Relations Practice
Gardere has the full range of unique expertise and tools necessary to assist corporate clients in resolving all of their governmental needs, specifically their needs in Texas. We are frequently called upon by clients to assist with: lobbying, rulemaking, licensing, compliance, enforcement, contracts and, when necessary, litigation. Our goal is to not only meet, but exceed our client’s expectations.
Our nationally and regionally recognized team of lawyers and registered lobbyists (in Texas) has extensive experience representing clients before state legislatures, regulatory agencies, courts, county and city governments and local boards and commissions. This experience is greatly enhanced by our backgrounds of working in the private sector, for trade associations, as managers of state agencies and holding top legislative positions. Clients choose us because we know how to navigate the bureaucracy to ensure clients have a voice in government and achieve results.
Our group earned first-tier honors in the Best Law Firms rankings compiled by the U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers (Steven Naifeh & Gregory White Smith eds., Woodward/White Inc.) in 2011, 2013 and 2015. In addition, Gardere was ranked as one of the top legal lobbying groups in the state by Capital Inside's Texas Lobby Power Rankings in 2013 and 2015 for having the state’s largest legislative practice housed at a law firm.
We take full advantage of being a part of a full-service law firm and work closely with other practices to ensure coordination with legislative and regulatory efforts and to assist clients in dealing with the political process. We also take advantage of our Austin office location to better serve our client’s needs at the Texas State Capitol.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
