ABOUT ME AND WHAT I DO

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.

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU

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.

 

I help businesses, trade associations, other tax-exempt entities and PACs sort out these rules, saving hours of staff time along the way.
