Political Law and Trade Associations

Trade Associations Hero Image.

A significant area of risk for trade associations is compliance with election and campaign finance laws. We advise trade associations and other nonprofit clients on state and federal campaign finance and political law compliance, including:

  • Creation and structuring of appropriate entities for political involvement
  • Representation before state and federal regulatory bodies
  • Lobbying registration and disclosure
  • Compliance with ethics laws
  • Assistance with compliance issues that arise in the course of political activities
    • Permissible political activities for nonprofit entities under the Internal Revenue Code and other applicable federal and state laws
    • Political and fundraising activities
    • Political action committee (PAC) creation, governance, and operations
    • Contributions and disclosure reporting

Our computerized database of the campaign finance laws and regulations in all 50 states enables us to respond quickly to your questions about contribution limits, prohibitions, and disclosure requirements from across the country and under federal law.
