Key practice areas

Our Government Relations Team is accomplished in diverse topics and industries.  Sample topics in key practice areas follow.

Health care

We support clients in developing state health policy.  Many of our clients are active with physician specialty groups, hospitals, insurance, electronic medical records, Affordable Care Act implementation, pharmaceuticals, wellness, procurement, eldercare—to name a few.  Frequently clients appear before the Senate Finance Committee and the House Health and Government Operations Committee.

Information technology

Clients who need the broad-based experience of our government relations team in information technology work with us on such issues as cybersecurity, Affordable Care Act implementation, SaaS, electronic health records, enterprise resource planning, procurement policy and processes, photo enforcement, call centers, broadband, fiber, eligibility determination, enterprise print services, pharmacy management and electronic payment cards. 


Our team has a successful history of working with clients on expanded gaming legislation in Maryland.  Our clients have strong relationships and contacts with the Maryland Lottery Agency.  A&C knows the major players in Maryland who influence gaming legislation and implementation through the procurement process.


Clients look to our government relations team for advocacy for special education schools and programs, charter schools and funding.


We work with our clients to development state energy policy.  Our clients’ interests include mergers and acquisitions, gas, electric, coal, Marcellus shale, solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and other renewables.  We generate results for independent power producers, fossil fuel generators/developers, retail and wholesale suppliers.


Clients who have environmental issues look to our government relations team to develop environmental policy.  Topics may include bay health, corporate requirements, regulations, tidal and non-tidal wetlands.  We work with appropriate department heads on regulatory issues.  Maryland is a state very conscious about the environment due to the sensitivities of the Chesapeake Bay.  Therefore, the state has many nuanced issues that A&C helps clients to navigate. 

Public safety

Our team gets results with clients at all levels of government on interoperable public safety systems, photo enforcement, EMS billing and procurement.


Clients seek out our government relations team for assistance with corporate tax policy, alcohol tax policy, telecommunications taxes, hospital fees and various state and county fees. 


We are proud to advocate for a wide range of non-profit organizations including trade and professional associations.  We often are successful in obtaining operating and capital budget appropriations and threading regulatory processes.
