Practice Overview

At Baker Donelson, we work with a wide range of clients to identify opportunities for federal support and to craft strategies to realize these goals. Our clients, which include corporations, nonprofits and trade associations, as well as states, municipalities, infrastructure interests and others, rely on the experience of our bipartisan team to meet their appropriations needs through customized and comprehensive solutions.

As the only legislation that Congress must pass annually, the appropriations bills written by the House and Senate committees influence every aspect of the federal government and have wide ranging effects on America's private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Achieving success from these complex negotiations requires a team with extensive experience in appropriations, strong relationships with congressional appropriators and staff, and a bipartisan approach to policymaking. Baker Donelson's Appropriations Team has decades of experience and understands the intricacies of the appropriations process. We are committed to preparing the ground for success and then working to ensure our clients' voices are heard by the right people at the right time.

Members of our team maintain strong relationships throughout the legislative and executive branches and include advisors with significant experience serving the U.S. House and U.S. Senate Appropriations committees.

Our team also has ongoing relationships with the staffs of numerous federal agencies and departments. These relationships, combined with our comprehensive knowledge of the federal procurement and grant making processes, ensure that our clients are kept abreast of federal funding, sales and grant opportunities and are given the best possible chance at success.
