Fisher Phillips Launches Legislative Advocacy Group
Benjamin Ebbink and Rick Grimaldi were quoted in the Bloomberg article “Fisher Phillips Launches Legislative Advocacy Group.” This article discusses the launch of FP Advocacy LLC, a subsidiary of Fisher Phillips that will provide legislative and regulatory advocacy services to management-side clients in the fields of labor and employment law.
The advocacy group will promote its knowledge of labor and employment law instead of relying primarily on personal connections with powerbrokers as many advocates do, said Ben. “That’s how we want to differentiate ourselves. We’re subject matter experts,” he said. “We understand the legal issues” in addition to the policy issues.
FP Advocacy’s list of services include legislative and budget advocacy, drafting and analyzing legislative bills, and monitoring legislative and regulatory proposals. Ben said the advocacy group also will offer strategic planning that helps clients identify potential issues and spot flaws in proposed legislation. “We have had real demand from clients,” he said.
