The Larkin Hoffman government relations team gives businesses and nonprofits a voice in government decision making and guides nonprofit organizations through the political and legislative process, helping them to pursue their goals and obtain favorable funding and policy initiatives from the Minnesota Legislature, state agencies, and local governments.
Every business and nonprofit organization in Minnesota is affected by governmental activity. At the city, county and state level, laws and regulations are enacted each year influencing the way businesses and nonprofits operate. Our lobbying team is at the table representing the interests of our clients when decisions are being made.
We help businesses that proactively want to bring forward an issue, as well as those needing to speak out on issues that could harm their business or industry. Our lobbyists give clients an effective voice through our contacts with key decision makers. We keep clients informed of important legislative activity as it develops and advocate actively for the issues that matter most to them. The Larkin Hoffman lobbying team represents business interests at all levels of government, ensuring that our clients are part of the process rather than left to deal with outcomes which ignore their needs and interests.
Our lobbyists have decades of experience earned through service on nonprofit boards and in the course of advocating for nonprofit clients before the Minnesota Legislature. We have been successful in funding new services, expanding facilities and taking projects from the ground floor to reality. With a continued presence at the legislature, our lobbyists constantly remind elected officials about the important work being done in Minnesota by nonprofit organizations. We assist in drafting legislation, strategize on funding choices and testify at committee hearings on our clients’ behalf.
