I’m Ben Palkowski and I appreciate you stopping by! You can read more about my services below. First, a few words about my perspective and generally what my business is all about.
As a dual-licensed attorney and certified public accountant with diverse experience in law, accounting and politics, I see the big picture. I help organizations and the people behind them execute their political programs. Mindful of both financial responsibilities and legal ramifications of engaging in the political process, I provide campaign finance consulting services to businesses, labor unions, trade associations, and other tax-exempt organizations.
If you think I can help you or your organization, please contact me. Together, we can determine whether we are a good fit for each other.
More about working with me:
Location. I am based in Boston, but travel frequently throughout New England and beyond. When in-person meetings are necessary, I am happy to either host or travel. I’m flexible.
Privacy and security. I use a secure portal, not email, to exchange particularly sensitive information.
Fees. I prefer to work on flat fees for the sake of simplicity, transparency and fairness. Other options are also available.
How to begin. Contact me directly to start the conversation!
When money touches politics, either via the legislative process or through election activity, failure to play by the rules can have expensive or embarrassing consequences. Meanwhile, scrutiny awaits from all directions — the media, government regulators, adversaries, watchdog groups and the electorate.
I oversee accounting and campaign finance and compliance for businesses, trade associations, labor unions, and other tax-exempt entities. In addition, I handle proceedings before, and inquiries from, tax and campaign finance regulatory authorities. I also consult with organizations on PAC administration.
As a dual-licensed attorney-CPA with experience in the various corners of the political arena, organizations rest assured that they have a professional on their team who possesses a holistic understanding of the campaign finance regulatory system, including the technical aspects of executing political programs on a practical level.
