Cotney Construction Lobbying

National Support from Cotney Construction Lobbying

Cotney Construction Law (CCL) is pleased to announce that it has retained Craig Brightup and The Brightup Group LLC to lobby for CCL client interests and the interests of the construction industry overall on a national level.

Craig Brightup is the CEO of The Brightup Group LLC and previously worked directly with the National Roofing Contractors Association’s (NRCA) political program for 19 years. Brightup is known as the roofing lobbyist in D.C. and as part of his work with Cotney Construction Law, he will be providing government relations consulting services for CCL clients in addition to promoting legislation and regulations that advocate for the construction industry.

“Our commitment to the roofing industry extends throughout every state and federally. Our partnership with The Brightup Group LLC and Craig Brightup ensures that we will be able to advocate for roofing contractors in front of the Legislative and Executive branches on issues such as OSHA, immigration, workforce development and construction-related initiatives,” stated Trent Cotney, CEO of Cotney Construction Law.

Cotney Construction Law will also provide insight from Craig Brightup to Cotney subscribers. “We continue to look for ways to add value to our subscribers and look forward to offering unique commentary and analysis from a well-known roofing lobbyist, Craig Brightup,” says John Kenney, CEO of Cotney Consulting Group.

“I’m thrilled to team up with a firm that understands the government issues that impact roofing contractors, especially as someone who’s been advocating for the industry for decades. I’m proud to extend and continue this crucial work as a lobbyist working with Cotney Construction Law to help propel the industry forward,” Craig Brightup, CEO of The Brightup Group LLC said.

Cotney Construction Lobbying Delivers

With diverse professional backgrounds in construction, law, business, and politics, our attorneys, consultants, lobbyists, and staff members have years of experience in the construction industry and consulting for government offices, construction firms, and various companies. Many of our team members are also board members or General Counsel of local, state, and national construction associations.

Legislative Work

Legislation and regulatory developments can significantly impact a construction business. As industry advocates, we are intimately familiar with the most recent trends in state and local legislature, and we closely monitor and assess the activity of legislative branches to ensure that your best interests are protected. With experience in policy drafting, we successfully craft proposals that influence lawmaker rulings on statutes, amendments, and regulations on the state and local levels for the betterment of the construction industry.

Executive Advocacy

Construction businesses need a proactive and loyal advocate in their corner that has experience standing before executive agencies and state lawmakers. We are committed to effectively communicating with our clients so that we can successfully address your concerns and advance your interests. We have years of experience providing legislative advocacy services, and we understand how to develop successful strategies that present your best interests to the executive branch of government.

Bid Work

As government contract procurement is a highly political endeavor, our attorneys and lobbyists act as a reliable business partner that connects our clients with agency decision-makers. In order to successfully procure lucrative government contracts, construction firms not only require valuable connections, but they also require assistance in developing an effective bid package that is compliant with strict government rules and regulations. Our team has established valuable relationships with key members of government agencies, and we can assist you with procuring projects with state government agencies.
