Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney nets $685K in Q3
Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney’s diverse client sheet helped the 10-member firm rake in an estimated $685,000 last quarter according to newly filed lobbying compensation reports.
The Q3 team of Ivette O’Doski, Keith Arnold, Brett Bacot, Marnie George, Michael Harrell, Paul Hawkes, Jim Magill, Kimberly McGlynn, Timothy Stanfield and Mac Stipanovich juggled the needs of 53 legislative clients and 54 executive ones during the July through September reporting period.
The sweetest deal: U.S. Sugar. The Clewiston-based ag interest spent between $30,000 and $40,000 for legislative work and another $10,000 to $20,000 for advocacy before the Governor and Cabinet, for a median contract estimate of $50,000.
Insurance company State Farm may have paid the same amount if it maxed out on its deal. The lobby shop marked them down for up to $40,000 on the legislative report and up to $10,000 on the executive report.
Marsy’s Law for All could also be in the $50K club, though it’s split favored the executive branch. The national org was the chief backer of Amendment 6, which will add a “crime victims bill of rights” to the state constitution. It was approved by Florida voters in the Nov. 6 election
