Government Relations

Pearce Durick PLLC understands that a client’s interests extend far beyond the courtroom. We established our Government Relations Practice to help companies, trade associations, local governments, and non-profits navigate North Dakota’s ever-changing political landscape and craft creative approaches to supporting and advancing their legislative or regulatory interests before the state’s administrative, regulatory, and legislative bodies. By drawing upon our resources as a full-service government relations consulting firm, Pearce Durick PLLC provides clients with all traditional government relations services, including:

  • Assisting with ballot initiatives
  • Building client relationships with legislators, state officials, and other decision-makers
  • Forming and managing coalitions with key stakeholders
  • Legislative lobbying
  • Monitoring committee hearings, floor sessions, and other legislative and executive meetings
  • Navigating complex regulatory issues
  • Policy development and analysis
  • Political messaging

Pearce Durick PLLC extends these services into the Interim when the Legislature is not in session and continues to engage executive branch officials, legislators, and key stakeholders to ensure that clients are not only able to monitor their respective legislative interests year-round, but that they are also uniquely positioned to influence and participate in all stages of the legislative process.
