Miller Johnson Announces Government Affairs Practice Group

Miller Johnson announced the formation of a new Government Affairs practice, furthering the firm’s success in representing corporations, small and medium-sized businesses, municipalities, school districts, nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, and individuals with matters before federal, state, and local legislative and executive branches of  government. The Government Affairs practice provides a bi-partisan approach to representing clients on issues that affect policymaking and laws daily. The formal launch of the practice was marked by a reception at Miller Johnson’s Grand Rapids office on Thursday, October 14.

“We are excited to bring a formal structure to the services that our clients have relied on from us for decades in Lansing, Washington, D.C., and at their local levels,” said Hillary J. Scholten, chair of Miller Johnson’s Government Affairs practice. “In our view many issues can be resolved, and often avoided, through better communication. Our team is made up of lawyers from almost every discipline, from employment to tax to benefits and public sector representation, so we are vocal advocates for our clients in a full range of political concerns.”

Miller Johnson has counseled clients for years on public affairs, tracking issues and monitoring legislation, producing client alerts and webinars, providing strategic advice on complex administrative reporting, and coordinating client communication with key decision makers in Congress and federal agencies. The firm also has related practices that specialize in Government Investigations, Election Law, Regulatory Compliance and Taxation matters and has served as a connector for clients to all three branches of government in understanding developments before and after they happen.
