As one of Tallahassee’s top specialty lobbying firms, Capital City Consulting has become one of few to crack $4 million for the first half of 2014.

In Q2 2014, Capital City filed estimated maximum earnings of $1,402,931 in legislative fees, $719,931 for executive advocacy, bringing its total to $2,122,862. Adding the $2,255,857 from Q1, the total now stands at an impressive $4,378,719 for 2014.

Posing blockbuster lobbying fees comes as little surprise, considering Capitol City’s six-member lobbying team featuring top names such as Nick Iarossi, Gerald Wester, Ronald LaFace, Chris Schoonover, Ken Granger and Ashley Mayer, who combined cover a roster of 81 legislative and 78 executive clients.

Once again, Capital City’s highest-paying Q2 customer was the Las Vegas Sands Corp, which paid the firm legislative lobbying fees of $73,000, a drop from last quarter’s $79,000. Following Sands Corp. is insurance giant Aetna, Inc., which gave up to $49,999.

At the $39,999 mark is the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform.

Next comes a wide range of interests featured at Capital City’s $29,999 level:

On the executive side, the top Capital City client in Q2 again was eye-care health provider Superior Vision Services, Inc., with up to $29,999 in executive advocacy. Health-care data-analytics firm Benefit Informatics, spent up to $19,999.
