Maritime - Government Relations

Safe Passage

Blank Rome Maritime’s government relations team helps you find safe passage during challenging times. We understand the interplay between law and politics.  Our experienced team of lobbying and communications professionals can help you navigate complexities and develop comprehensive strategies that lead to successful outcomes. 

We serve as advisers and advocates, helping clients anticipate and take advantage of the issues and opportunities that affect the maritime industry.  We can help you obtain government funding for projects, and influence maritime policy and legislation. We work hand-in-hand to design strategies that allow our clients to directly participate in the legislative and regulatory process, to effectively address their issues with Congress and federal, state, and local governments.

We regularly advise on:

  • appropriations and grants
  • communications and public relations
  • congressional oversight
  • environment, health, and safety
  • federal investigations
  • government contracts
  • homeland security
  • legislation and maritime policy development
  • regulatory compliance
  • tax
  • transportation

Government and Public Relations Partners

Blank Rome also has a Government Contracts group, prepared to serve at all stages of the government procurement process—from helping companies locate business opportunities, to assisting them in preparing proposals and negotiating contracts, and, if need be, representing them in resolving disputes.

In the European Union, Blank Rome has a strategic alliance with Brussels-based Interel, a leading public affairs and public relations agency.  Through this partnership, Interel and Blank Rome provide a seamless E.U.–U.S. legal, government relations, and strategic communications service to companies who are increasingly impacted by decisions made on both sides of the Atlantic.
