The Right Mix of Law and Politics

Complying with federal and state campaign finance and election law is more complex today than ever before. Every state, along with the federal government has its own campaign finance laws and ethics rules that regulate contributions and expenditures, plus a wide variety of disclosure requirements. Political opponents may scrutinize your every step, looking for the slightest mistake to highlight. One mistake – either real or perceived – can land you in front of a campaign finance commission and on the evening news.

From initial set-up documentation through ongoing disclosures and defense against complaints, Chalmers, Adams, Backer & Kaufman advises and protects a variety of entities, including:

  • State and federal candidates and elected officials
  • Political action committees
  • Political parties
  • For-profit and non-profit corporations and trade associations
