Why Gunster’s regional presence in Florida matters

There’s an axiom many in government use and that is, “All politics is local.”

That’s especially true in Florida.

Gunster’s government affairs law and lobbying team works in a variety of ways that impact local communities.

For example, we work with state leaders on matters of policy impacting all Floridians. We also deal with city and county officials on complex land use or purchasing matters.

In every case, the government officials and business leaders we work with want to know

  • how the decisions they make will impact their neighbors and businesses in their own communities
  • And they look for advocates who are professional, candid and who can vigorously represent their clients’ interests

Fortunately, Gunster’s statewide platform – along with the involved, community-minded professionals who call each of our offices home – gives us the ability to interact with these decision-makers on behalf of our clients in ways that are most impactful at the place of most concern: the local community.
