Overview

New Mexico's "Roundhouse," as our beautiful and unique capitol building in Santa Fe is known, is a legislative and executive branch arena that is somewhat legendary in political circles nationwide, and its circular hallways are emblematic of the challenges often posed for clients who enter.  Our lawyer-lobbyists can be critical components of legislative and governmental affairs initiatives, and are respected as substantively knowledgeable sources of input on both sides of the aisle, and by the Governor and Governor's staff housed on the fourth floor of the Roundhouse.  We also have been offered as legal experts during legislative hearings.
