Campaign Finance After Citizens United


The latest Supreme Court decision on campaign finance has dramatically expanded the political options for corporations and labor unions. What issues and considerations arise in the course of utilizing this new flexibility?

Trade Associations

Even more so than businesses themselves, nonprofit groups which represent business and industry are viewed by many as best situated to leverage the recent expansion of corporate political speech rights. What other factors are relevant to trade associations in this new era?

PACs/Party Committees

While party committees continue to operate under the soft money restrictions of McCain-Feingold, nonconnected committees and other PACs are becoming more prominent and more effective. Why? And what other changes lie ahead for PACs and political parties?

Lobbying & Advocacy

Nonprofit Organizations

The scope of the Supreme Court's reasoning in Citizens United has led to informed speculation that the campaign intervention prohibition for public charities and private foundations may be overturned on similar grounds. How likely is such a change, under what circumstances is a challenge likely to be brought, and what other tax issues remain for advocacy organizations?

Lobbying Disclosure Act, HLOGA, & Obama Admininistration Policies

Even given the broad range of lobbying changes imposed thus far, the Obama Administration itself says it’s not done with its efforts to change the way business is done in Washington. What other rules can lobbyists and lobbying clients expect to see change in coming years?

New Regulation Going Forward

Criminal Law

As the Supreme Court carves back on the scope of the permissible administrative regulation of politics, many are watching for signs that criminal prosecutors may step more aggressively into public corruption cases as a result. What impact will the Court's consideration of honest services fraud have on this evolution?

Pay to Play

The Securities and Exchange Commission's rulemaking on a nationwide pay to play rule could be resolved any day now. What issues will a resulting rule face in implementation, and what other developments at the state and local level must financial services firms that manage public funds be aware of?


The recent up-trend in cases involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act shows no signs of slowing. What recent trends and developments should international businesses be aware of, and what broader conclusions can be drawn from the DOJ's approach to these issues?
