Luetkemeyer leads panel discussion at annual COGEL conference

Graves Garrett partner Lucinda Luetkemeyer recently presented at a panel discussion titled, “Building Relationships for Better Outcomes: Interactions with the Regulated Community,” at the annual conference of the Council on Governmental Ethics Laws (COGEL) in Kansas City.

The panel brought together practitioners and regulators to discuss campaign finance, lobbying, and ethics enforcement laws and best practices. COGEL members, including state ethics commission officials, elections administrators and campaign finance attorneys, gathered to hear Luetkemeyer and other panelists discuss the complexities of representing campaigns and nonprofit groups in today’s ever-changing enforcement landscape. The program highlighted campaign finance “reform,” representing targets of ethics complaints, and best practices for resolving enforcement actions.

Luetkemeyer represents clients in Graves Garrett’s Free Speech and Election Law practice group, where she regularly counsels clients on compliance with state and federal ethics and campaign finance laws and has experience advising candidates for state and federal office, statewide officials, members of Congress, political committees, and nonprofits.
