Foley and Lardner has a long tenure of lobbying Florida’s lawmakers — and while not the largest firm in town, manages to play a role in nearly every major issue in the process.
With 41 legislative lobbying clients and 42 for the executive branch, Foley’s nine lobbyists hit some of the big takes of 2013: casino interests, Dosal tobacco, Cisco, Florida Workers’ Compensation Joint Underwriters, Aetna, and Verizon.
In sum, Foley reported collecting as much as $499,999 in both executive and legislative lobbying fees.
This is comparable to their reported compensation last quarter and last year — with few changes. This year, Foley gained clients in Florida Alimony Reform and Family Law Reform, and now represents Resorts World Miami.
Foley lobbyist Mike Harrell and consultant Marnie George recently announced their departure to the prominent lobby firm of Pennington, PA.
Each quarter, lobbyists who are registered to represent clients before Florida’s legislature or executive branch must submit reports detailing their client roster and compensation ranges. This week, reports are due for the period spanning April 1 through June 30, 2013 and reflect the year-round work that these firms do in representing interests that span every industry sector.
