Jefferson Parish Renews D.C. Lobbying Contract with Adams and Reese

April 06, 2018

An article appearing in The New Orleans Advocate by Chad Calder announced that, “Jefferson Parish has renewed its contract with the law firm Adams and Reese to lobby federal officials and the state's congressional delegation in Washington, D.C., selecting the incumbent firm over three challengers.”

Quotes from the article included:
Council At-Large Member Chris Roberts said, “Adams and Reese has proved itself over more than a decade of representing the parish's interests on Capitol Hill, such as in securing funds after Katrina and after the BP oil spill and for flood-protection projects.”

Council At-Large Member Cynthia Lee-Sheng said her dealings with Adams and Reese - notably in efforts to get funding for drainage projects - have always left her impressed. "They're very much in the know, and when I'm able to go to D.C., they get meetings for us with all the right people," she said. "They've been doing it for a long time, and they have a great reputation."

Adams and Reese's Washington, DC - based Government Relations team, led by Partner and Executive Committee Chairman, Jeff Brooks, has had the privilege of representing Jefferson Parish, Louisiana for its work with the federal government for the last 14 years.
