The Pennington Firm's attorneys and special consultants in this practice area have extensive experience in governmental representation, much of it gained through public service as elected or appointed officials. The Pennington Firm is able to provide clients with successful strategies and effective representation based on the priorities and objectives established by the clients. By utilizing a "team approach" to lobbying, the firm ensures that each project undertaken on behalf of the client receives the requisite time, resources, and management attention. The extensive involvement of the firm in the legislative process creates a type of synergy, increasing the Pennington Firm's effectiveness and, thus, the client's presence in the process.

The Pennington Firm provides legislative representation to a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies, business and professional associations, and governmental entities before the Governor and Cabinet, Florida Legislature, Florida executive branch agencies, and local governments.
