Ethics and Lobbying Compliance in NY - Navigating the Minefield

Go Back

Learn the issues and obstacles associated with lobbying in New York State.  Now more than ever, compliance with ethics and lobbying laws is at a premium and organizational awareness is the key to identifying and mitigating risk. This discussion, led by Harris Beach’s Lobbying Compliance Team -- Mitch Pawluk, Esq. and Joan Sullivan, Esq. -- brings greater awareness to boards of directors, executive leadership, and government affairs personnel. It will address issues commonly faced by companies and nonprofits, including:

  • What is “Lobbying” and who needs to register?
  • Exceptions, exceptions, exceptions . . .
  • “So I attended a lobby day . . .”
  • When economic development becomes “lobbying”
  • Municipal lobbying—it’s broader than you think
  • Ball of confusion—complying with state and local gift laws
  • Stories from the trench: Real-life hypotheticals
  • Best practices
