Government Relations, Campaign Finance and Procurement

Success in the world of politics and lawmaking demands skilled and thoughtful guidance, the kind that is gained through hands-on experience and built on strong relationships. Messerli Kramer’s Government Relations team has had a respected presence at the state Legislature and before administrative agencies on behalf of numerous well-known businesses, industry associations and local governments for more than forty years. Our lobbyists have earned a reputation as “the best at the Capitol” by building trusted relationships and representing clients with single-minded determination.

Our bi-partisan team has a deep understanding of Minnesota’s political system. We provide comprehensive campaign finance advice and support, as well as general counsel on the political process. We can assist with lobbyist and political action committee registration and reporting, and advise regarding campaign law and the formation, operation and compliance of political action committees. Our team also provides comprehensive government procurement support, advising clients from the initiation of procurement opportunities through contract negotiation and implementation.
