Washington, D.C., June 28, 2005 - Covington & Burling and Democracy, Data & Communications, L.L.C. (DDC) today announced an alliance to provide integrated support services for political action committees. The firms will offer joint, high-level strategic counsel for responding to challenges associated with PAC compliance and fundraising. Both Covington and DDC currently represent numerous Fortune 500 corporations, trade associations, and their PACs.
The alliance allows both firms to offer organizations an integrated solution enabling them to better align their PAC management and fundraising practices. The PAC experts at both firms will work closely together to provide cutting-edge fundraising techniques and complementary technologies, while emphasizing careful compliance with the increasingly complex federal, state, and local election laws.
"This alliance will enable us jointly to provide the gold standard in PAC support services," said Rob Kelner, head of Covington's Election Law and Political Law Practice Group. "Changes in the campaign finance laws have encouraged the creation of many new PACs and have caused corporations in particular to modernize and grow their existing PACs. Covington and DDC can meet all of the PAC-related needs of our clients in an efficient and legally compliant manner."
Holly Pitt Young, DDC's Vice President for PAC Development, added, "Our joint strategic counsel will be particularly valuable to organizations that are just starting a PAC or are seeking to expand their PACs rapidly. Covington and DDC can help organizations maximize the potential of their eligible class cost-effectively and in accordance with FEC guidelines."
Covington's nationally recognized election law practice advises clients on compliance with the federal and state campaign finance and election laws. Covington also represents clients in disputes with the Federal Election Commission and state election agencies. DDC is a widely respected and leading provider of PAC consulting services, including fundraising software tools, strategic PAC development advice, and PAC accounting and reporting.
