Government Relations

Government Relations

Attorneys at Montgomery & Andrews have a rich history of advocacy for clients before the legislature, in the Governor’s office, before state regulatory bodies and with the New Mexico congressional delegation. Our lawyers have deep ties in our community that allow us to advocate on behalf of a client in ways that less established firms and smaller lobbying teams cannot. Our decades of experience walking the halls of the Roundhouse have given us unique insight into the legislative process and an understanding of the tides of public and legislative opinion that are unmatched by any other lobbying team in New Mexico.

Montgomery & Andrews’ reputation is not only recognized in New Mexico, but internationally as well. The firm is a member of the State Capital Global Law Firm Group; which is an international organization of the world’s premier lobbying law firms. Montgomery & Andrews is New Mexico’s only member, and Attorney Nancy King, one of the firm’s primary lobbyists is the past chair of the Group and serves on its board. Our membership in the Group allows us to expand the scope of our representation by drawing on a worldwide network of lobbyists who bring invaluable expertise to difficult or challenging projects.
