JEFFREY J. HUNTER Special Counsel
Jeff Hunter’s practice is focused on federal and state campaign finance, lobbying disclosure and ethics rule compliance.  He advises on PAC creation, operation and reporting, as well as responding to formal complaint and informal agency reviews at the federal and state levels.  Jeff is also involved in Federal Communications Commission political broadcasting regulatory compliance.

Given the current political climate, Jeff’s practice has increasingly focused on Federal Election Commission, U.S. Department of Justice and state enforcement proceedings, as well as compliance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of 1938.  FARA requires U.S. entities that provide political or public relations services to foreign entities to disclose their relationships with their clients, and information about related activities and finances.

Jeff is personally dedicated to providing excellent work product and advice that has the best possible chance of realizing his client’s objectives.  Responsive, trusted and smart, Jeff has represented several clients over the course of his entire career, a testament to his dedication, service, commitment and unwavering drive.

Having “grown up” in politics with a father who served three presidents in White House posts, Jeff’s involvement in and understanding of the political realm are innate.  Regardless of his client’s political affiliation, Jeff is known and valued for his ability to reduce complex problems to workable, actionable items that produce the right result.
