Lawyers and law firms are jumping into the 2008 presidential election, a race that is expected to be expensive and inundated with regulatory compliance issues. In the past few months, presidential candidates have retained lawyers as general counsel to their campaigns. Other lawyers have signed up as campaign advisers, fund-raisers or volunteers. Meanwhile, some new firms are starting election law practices with recent hires from the Federal Election Commission.
