As Democrats and Republicans prepare for the upcoming elections, national party committees have already paid millions of dollars to several large law firms and boutiques this year for various legal fees and disbursements.

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, Elias Law Group, and Perkins Coie have been the top-paid law firms by the Democratic National Committee in the first half of the year, while the Republican National Committee has turned to Consovoy McCarthy, McGuireWoods, and Wiley Rein, according to Federal Election Commission records from January through the end of July. Meanwhile, Jones Day has been a top recipient of the GOP’s congressional and Senate committees.
