William Minor leads the firm's political law practice, which advises clients on the intersection of law, advocacy, and political activity, and represents corporations, associations, non-profits and others in high-profile government investigations and enforcement matters.

For more than 25 years, William has counselled clients on matters of political and legal risk, particularly federal, state, and international lobbying laws, campaign finance regulations, and government ethics rules. He applies to these representations a deep understanding of both the legal requirements as well as the practical needs and objectives of those involved in government advocacy and political activity.

Chambers USA, The Washingtonian, the Ethisphere Institute, and others have long recognized William as a leading authority on the Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA), the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), campaign finance law and regulations, congressional and Executive Branch gift and travel rules, and "pay-to-play" restrictions applicable to government contractors and regulated entities.

William regularly represents clients in enforcement matters before the Department of Justice, the Federal Election Commission, and the congressional ethics committees. He has also represented clients in formal and informal congressional investigations and prepared executives for highly-scrutinized testimony in congressional oversight hearings.

In addition, William works closely with corporate and non-profit clients in a wide variety of industries to develop and implement effective compliance strategies for lobbying, advocacy, and political activity. This often includes the organization and management of political action committees (PACs), the development of lobbying and political activity policies, and the creation of training programs to ensure continued compliance.

On behalf of the firm, William currently serves as Deputy Managing Partner of the Washington, DC office and manages the firm's own PAC and political law compliance efforts, working closely with the firm's Office of General Counsel.
