If campaign contributions are any measure of a firm’s political clout, then Patton Boggs and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld stand head and shoulders above the rest of the D.C. 20. Notably, Democrats have reaped more than twice as much political money from the region’s biggest firms as Republicans. The chart found herelists campaign contributions during the current election cycle from the highest-grossing law firms in the D.C. area (as determined by Legal Times‘ annual survey) based on data available from the Federal Election Commission on Oct. 25. The numbers reflect donations by employees of the firms and their dependents with a D.C., Maryland, or Virginia address in the FEC database. The columns entitled “Republicans” and “Democrats” include donations to all federal candidates, party committees, and leadership PACs. “RNC” and “DNC” refer to donations to the Republican and Democratic national committees. The data were compiled for Legal Timesby the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan organization that tracks campaign finance.
