Instant Indiana Lobbyist
A client with operations in all 50 states discovered that a bill that would put its company out of business in Indiana was on that state’s General Assembly’s fast track for passage. The client asked Steve Tugend, a Kegler attorney with in-house corporate multi-state government relations experience, if he could help identify an Indiana lobbyist to help defeat the legislation. Within 18 hours, Steve had utilized his contacts in that state, interviewed 3 different lobbying firms and hired one for the client.
Six weeks later, due to the efforts of the selected lobbyist, the bill was halted in spite of it having been passed by the Indiana Senate and favorably reported by a committee in the Indiana House.
