Regarding lobbying, Brownstein Hyatt is the firm that big businesses like Johnson & Johnson turn to.
On Wednesday, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, the premier lobbying firm in Washington, DC, sponsored a black-tie event, and more than half of the Democratic Senate caucus was in attendance.
Norm Brownstein, the company’s founder, and Nadeam Elshami, Nancy Pelosi’s former chief of staff, hosted the Senate Democrats’ 12th annual fundraiser. Twenty-four members of the Democratic caucus in the Senate were present, including Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and Majority Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.).
According to Punchbowl News, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) raised $525,000 during the fundraiser on Wednesday night, $120,000 of which came from individual donors.
According to Bloomberg statistics, Brownstein Hyatt earned $61.6 million in federal lobbying income in 2022, roughly $10 million more than its nearest competitor.
In 2021, Brownstein Hyatt reported a record-breaking $56.48 million in lobbying income. Revenue for 2022 is another all-time high for the company.
Elshami, who credited the firm’s “bipartisan team” for its performance last week, said to Reuters, “We will continue to build upon our accomplishments as we help our customers navigate a divided Congress.”
In 2022, Brownstein Hyatt’s closest rival was Akin Gump, which earned $53.4 million.
