The U.S legislative process is a dynamic system affording you many opportunities to shape public policy and lawmaking. To be effective, preparation is essential. To make the most of your proposed public policy strategy on Capitol Hill, you must always factor in issue ripeness, stakeholders, cost, and tax ramifications, to name a few.
In addition to administrative and regulatory law, individuals and companies can also be subject to various forms of Congressional inquiries. Of all Congressional powers, oversight is one of its most powerful tools. Congressional inquiries arise in multiple manners ranging from requests for information from individual Members of Congress to subpoenas from Congressional Committees.
Congressional inquiries often have simultaneous ramifications: legal, political, and public relations. Matters can be referred for criminal prosecution or result in stringent legislative action. Many times activities may involve a great deal of media scrutiny. Our attorneys and public policy advisors served in senior positions on Capitol Hill and are experienced with Congressional oversight practices, rules, and procedures.
