Government Relations Lawyers In Wilmette


If there is one thing we have learned in Illinois is that political decisions shape how businesses operate on our State. A minor change in local, state or federal law can have a significant impact on a company. This change can alter the way a business functions, and even force the company to spend extra money to comply with new regulations. If you’re a business owner, one of the smartest actions you can take is having a government relations attorney by your side. Chris Canning, who has advocated in Springfield and Washington is the lawyer you want on your side.

Chris’ experience in government means that he can represent you in any government relations issue by:

  • Listening to your needs and business goals
  • Developing strategies
  • Drafting policy changes
  • Advocating on your behalf
  • Educating government officials
  • Ensuring your business meets requirements
  • Providing sound legal counsel

In our experience it is a fact that lawmakers may not always consider the effects of their policies on your business. Whether you need help preventing the creation of a new law or initiating a policy change, we’re at your service.

At Canning & Canning LLC, we have a comprehensive knowledge of key local, state and federal laws that impact business. We stay current with the changes concerning business and employment procedures so you don’t have to.
