Saxton & Stump recognizes that the government and state agencies have an impact on every industry sector in our economy and that laws and regulations impact the bottom lines, and can even determine the future, for businesses and organizations. Our Regulatory and Government Affairs team empowers clients to shape decisions to gain a competitive edge. We provide timely and relevant information and the ability to identify and access government officials about proposed regulations and legislation that affect their businesses.

We work with clients in the public and private sectors by connecting them with decision makers and helping them navigate the complex government infrastructure and regulatory agencies to meet their goals. Our team leverages our long-standing relationships to influence policy as well as gain support for government funding to benefit industries, businesses, non-profit organizations and interest groups across Pennsylvania.

The team is led by Kathleen Duffy Bruder who brings both legislative and executive branch experience. She is joined by attorneys and professionals with first-hand experience in the political, regulatory, business, governmental and judicial arenas. Combined, they bring a depth of governmental experience at the state and federal levels that can provide a valuable perspective to the clients we serve and they were recently recognized by City & State Pennsylvania as among the top 50 lobbyists in the state.
