MWC Ranked 17th in 2010 Influence 50
The Influence 50 takes a comprehensive measurement of all fees from more than 1,900 firms related to lobbying and includes revenues reported to Congress under the Lobbying Disclosure Act and to the U.S. Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and it also asks firms to provide information about state and local lobbying done from Washington-area offices. It also requires firms to report other related work, such as representation of clients before federal agencies or grassroots organizing.
"This was a true team effort and we are very pleased to be recognized for our great achievements this year," said L.F. Payne, president of McGuireWoods Consutling. "While we certainly benefited from fees collected in relation to 2010's major federal issues - healthcare and financial reform legislation - the major driver of our success continues to be our national government relations efforts which emcompass federal, state and local lobbying, and our grassroots practice."
