Government Affairs
The Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek Government Affairs Team includes experienced former public servants who have the depth, breadth, and ability to aid our clients in understanding Wisconsin government and achieving their goals within it. From both sides of the aisle, and from both the legislative and executive branch, we have a diverse knowledge of the inner workings of the state government and a wealth of experience at each level of administration. As practicing attorneys, our bipartisan team seeks to combine our legal expertise with our extensive experience to deliver the best possible advice, the best possible direction, and the best possible result for our clients.
 
With more than 40 years of combined experience, our bipartisan team has worked on a wide range of issues, with an even wider range of goals. From working with major Fortune 500 companies to helping non-profits, we have developed the knowledge and flexibility to meet the needs of any client and bring their goals within Wisconsin to a positive result. We possess the unique ability to understand technical and business requirements and translate those into effective and workable results before the Wisconsin legislative and executive branches, as well as independent regulatory agencies.
 
To achieve our aims, we work with our clients to develop a far-reaching strategy that will maximize our effect. We target the key players associated with our clients’ goals, find and build relationships with potential allies, and develop a message to government officials and to the public that works toward our ultimate aim. We also develop the flexibility to give our clients the maximum number of options, in order to assure that a positive result is achieved.
 
Among law firms and independent contract lobbyists providing government relations, we believe that none has a practice that offers more comprehensive ability to address the needs of various clients—whether before the state legislature, in government offices, or in commercial or litigation matters that have public policy dimensions.
