Campaign Finance Compliance
Campaign finance laws differ at the federal, state, and local levels. Reed & Davidson helps clients navigate the byzantine world of campaign finance law to help them achieve their objectives a number of ways:
Choosing the Right Entities
The type of entity (or entities) you choose to form will affect your ability to fundraise for a given electoral goal. Reed & Davidson counsels clients on the types of entities that make the most sense for achieving their goals.
Once your organization is established, it must follow laws and regulations established by:
- The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) and the Federal Election Commission
- The California Political Reform Act (and other state laws) and the California Fair Political Practices Commission (and other state campaign ethics agencies)
- Local campaign ordinances and local campaign ethics agencies
Reed & Davidson helps clients navigate this web of laws to ensure ongoing compliance with their fundraising and expenditure activities.
