Government Affairs & Regulation

Our roots in the New Hampshire political community and our historical involvement in the public affairs of the State have provided us with extensive experience with local, State and federal government. We regularly assist our clients with a broad range of government regulation. In addition, we can help them get involved in developing public policy directly related to their business and personal interests. 

The government in the modern regulatory State has become your silent business partner because government regulation plays such a significant role in the day-to-day operation of your business. We handle client issues at all levels of government in areas, such as: rulemaking, lobbying, monitoring, and testimony, issue management, coalition building, association management, management support, and program support.

Legislative Counsel

As registered lobbyists, McLane Middleton has represented numerous businesses and individuals, chambers of commerce, and trade associations before the New Hampshire Legislature, the Executive Branch, and regulatory agencies.  Our clients receive highly personalized services from experienced legislative and regulatory affairs professionals.
