Government Relations

Our Government Relations attorneys have decades of experience with state and city government. We are committed to providing high quality, professional services while providing the individualized attention that each client deserves. We help our clients navigate through the administrative, budgetary, legislative and regulatory processes in New York State, New York City and other local governments. Our Government Relations practice is spearheaded by Stacey Rowland, Partner in Charge of our Albany, NY office, a former Deputy Superintendent for Intergovernmental and Legislative Relations at the New York State Department of Insurance (now the Department of Financial Services), who also served as an Assistant Attorney General and an Assistant Counsel to both the State Comptroller and the Senate Finance Committee. The Government Relations team also includes partners and counsel who have extensive experience working on major projects with and providing counsel to several state and city agencies. We have spent years developing relationships with key decision makers who respect our acumen and insight as evidenced by our daily practice.

We have worked closely with the Governor’s Office and all levels of executive staff, both houses in the legislature including their leaders, committee chairs and ranking members, the Office of the State Comptroller, the Department of Law, state agencies, local officials across the state, and New York’s members of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Senate.

Bryant Rabbino advocates for our clients and works diligently to ensure that our clients’ positions are not only heard, but considered, while we negotiate legislation, seek regulatory change, or search for procurement opportunities.   Bryant Rabbino sets itself apart from the competition with its diverse team of talented attorneys. We believe strongly that diversity is an essential component of good business practice, and this principle serves as a foundation for our firm. Our firm reflects the landscape of the legislature, not to mention the landscape of the State of New York.
