I’m Ben Palkowski and I appreciate you stopping by!
I’m a dual-licensed attorney and certified public accountant who previously managed and worked the front lines of political committees. I have also served as government relations counsel, representing trade associations, municipalities, labor unions and businesses before legislative and regulatory bodies.
Given my unique combination of experience and understanding of the legal, financial and political landmines associated with engaging in the political process, I advise organizations on campaign finance-related issues.

Failure to play by the rules, whether participating in the legislative process or political campaigns, can lead to expensive or embarrassing consequences. Meanwhile, scrutiny awaits from all directions — the media, government regulators, adversaries, watchdog groups and the electorate.

COMPLIANCE: I review solicitation programs, financial transactions, staffing structure, and advertisements to ensure compliance with tax and campaign finance laws.
REPORTING: I prepare campaign finance, ethics, and lobbying disclosure reports.
I also handle various one-off issues and short-term projects. Some of my recent work includes:

I’m based in Boston, but travel frequently throughout New England and beyond, and easy to get a hold of from anywhere in the United States.
