Election Law, Political Contribution Law and Pay to Play

Wilentz lawyers have deep experience and are well acquainted with the intricate laws and regulations imposed upon candidates, political action committees and persons and businesses that make political contributions. Our government lawyers provide guidance and advice to corporations, trade groups, political action committees, campaign officials, contributors, and public question committees concerning compliance with state and federal election laws. We also represent clients regarding compliance with the New Jersey Campaign Contributions and Expenditures Reporting Act and its implementing regulations. Our governmental affairs lawyers have particular experience in the laws and regulations governing campaign finance, including those imposed by New Jersey’s complex "pay-to-play" reforms that specifically affect entities doing business with State and local governmental entities.

We routinely counsel our clients about the appropriate mechanisms for making State and local political contributions, and about the impact that those contributions have on their business interests. We offer solutions that enable our clients to meet business goals, while participating in the political process.
