State Government Relations

LGN’s State and Local Government Affairs team is second to none. We have a strong record as successful advocates because we listen to and counsel our clients, and find strategic and creative ways to meet their needs. Through our broad-based political affiliations we have developed strong, long-term, personal connections with lawmakers and agency staff throughout the Midwest and in Washington, D.C. LGN team members in all practice areas collaborate to offer our clients services in the boardroom, the courtroom, and the capitol.


Local governments, associations, Indian tribes, and businesses of every size must be prepared to quickly and positively influence the legislative process at both the state and federal levels. The Lockridge Grindal Nauen team helps our clients:

  • respond to public policy changes that affect them every day;
  • identify opportunities for action at the Capitols in St. Paul, MN, Bismarck, ND, and in Washington, D.C.;
  • organize, educate and mobilize stakeholders at the grassroots;
  • communicate clearly and persuasively; and,
  • achieve long-term success.


It is our goal to strategically assist our clients with state policy leaders. We work with our clients to formulate a thoughtful and effective strategy to implement their legislative and administrative agenda while responding quickly and effectively to lawmakers and decision-makers’ questions and concerns to maximize their influence on public policy.

We work closely with our clients to develop a strategic action plan that anticipates and avoids real and potential problem. We manage oral and written communications with key agencies, legislators, and stakeholders to best position you at the State Capitol. Additionally, we compile and analyze the political landscape relevant to your objectives to ensure the plan we develop together utilizes the necessary relationships and political strategy to accomplish your goals.
