Top 25 Lobbying Firms (2007)

From the National Journal:

Total federal lobbying spending hit $2.79 billion in 2007, up 7.7 percent from $2.59 billion in 2006, according to the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics. The total is based on the semi-annual reports that all registered lobbyists, lobbying firms, and corporations submit to Congress under the 1995 Lobbying Disclosure Act. Under amendments passed in 2007, beginning this year lobbyists and firms must report twice as often-every quarter.

For the fifth year in a row, law and lobbying firm Patton Boggs came in at No. 1, reporting $42.5 million in fees, an increase of 23 percent from 2006.

The No. 2 firm last year was Akin Gump, posting fees of $32 million, up 25 percent from 2006.
