PSG Lobbying Team Recognized Amongst New York’s Best

From City & State NY:


"City & State’s Top 50 State Lobbyists list highlights the most sought-after firms in the business. Based on the state Joint Commission on Public Ethics’ lobbying compensation data for 2020, the list excludes income for other services, such as communications and campaign consulting. We excluded entities – such as the Greater New York Hospital Association – that lobby solely on its own behalf. Also, we combined lobbying entities that are part of the same corporate family.

We then asked each firm to review our calculations and provide information, including identifying up to five notable clients and five key industries. We also asked each firm to share their biggest accomplishment on the state level in the past year. All answers that were submitted to those and a few other questions are in quotes. We filled in any gaps with details from JCOPE filings in the background information sections."


PSG Lobbying Team:
Saima Anjam, Vice President

Dan Katz, Executive Vice President and General Counsel

Benjamin Kern, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel


Key industries:
Technology, sports and gaming, energy and telecommunications, nonprofit and labor


Notable clients:
AT&T, Brooklyn Nets, CAMBA Inc., Microsoft, 32BJ SEIU


Biggest achievement in the past year?

PSG Team:
“We are obviously proud of so many incredible victories that we helped achieve for our clients, whether it is helping industries navigate the COVID-19 reopening process, securing government assistance for essential workers or passing critical alternative energy legislation. But our biggest achievement in the past year has to have been the passage of mobile sports betting. On behalf of a variety of industry stakeholders, we directed a complex public affairs campaign that culminated in the 2021-22 state budget authorizing mobile sports betting in New York.”
