Healthcare: Legislative and Government Affairs

For nearly 25 years, our bipartisan team of registered lobbyists, regulatory specialists, policy advisors, and analysts has skillfully navigated the federal legislative and regulatory processes to advance and protect clients' interests and help them to achieve their business and organizational goals.

If a client wants the federal government to start or stop doing something, do something differently, or increase or modify funding for a particular initiative, our bipartisan team devises a creative, effective strategy to achieve the needed outcome.

Housed within the firm's Legislative and Government Affairs Practice Group, our team boasts a long and successful track record in shaping the outcome of federal legislative and regulatory health policy. The Health Policy team brings keen insight into and sharp understanding of the myriad ways in which federal health policy impacts the nation's economy and practically every industry. Our team works closely with clients, such as hospitals and health systems, provider associations, start-up healthcare companies, patient organizations, research entities, trade associations, global health organizations, and others in the healthcare arena to proactively engage in the federal public policy process.

Many lobbyists just advise clients on what they should do; our team takes action. We roll up our sleeves and get in the trenches, working collaboratively with clients to identify and address the most significant threats and greatest opportunities. By leveraging our vast network of contacts on Capitol Hill, in the executive branch, and at key government agencies, we ensure that our clients have the timely information and analysis needed to stay ahead of the curve regarding health policy developments and to have a say in the outcomes of health policy deliberations. When clients hire the Health Policy team, they get access to the full cohort of the Venable Legislative and Government Affairs Practice Group professionals, who bring an array of bipartisan contacts throughout Congress and the executive branch.

Within the Health Policy team and the broader Legislative and Government Affairs Practice Group, we have former House and Senate and federal agency staffers who have also worked in-house at trade associations, startups, provider entities, and advocacy organizations. This experience gives us the insight needed to develop effective strategies on behalf of our healthcare clients and arms us with firsthand knowledge of what elected officials and their staff need to hear from lobbyists and constituents. And we fully appreciate the challenges and pressures our clients face within their companies and organizations to have their government relations efforts and investments produce results. Our team members spend time getting to know each client, to understand what is keeping them up at night, and then develop a unique engagement plan—and a carefully selected group of our professionals—to tackle their top concerns.

The Venable Health Policy team is at the ready to support you in your federal legislative, regulatory, appropriations, and programmatic lobbying and advocacy efforts.
