Governmental Relations and Lobbying

Level the playing field. Contact our law firm.

Dealing with the government can be very complicated in South Dakota. This is especially true if you or your company needs to work with state or federal politicians or bureaucrats in various government agencies.

Each government office often has its own unique rules and regulations which must be strictly followed. Then there are the unwritten rules, the customs and manners that different government officials or offices often have which need to be considered if you want to accomplish your goals in an effective manner.
