David Ferrell Recognized as 2021 Top North Carolina Lobbyist
For the second consecutive year, North State Journal has recognized Nexsen Pruet Public Policy attorney David Ferrell as one of North Carolina's top 25 lobbyists.
The publication surveyed legislators, business leaders, and reporters and has gathered data on clients represented by lobbyists to narrow the list down to less than 4% of registered lobbyists in the state.
David is a North Carolina registered lobbyist and has experience in state, local, and executive branch lobbying, grassroots campaigns, and regulatory compliance. His government relations experience includes a diverse group of clients and a wide range of issues, allowing him to appear in and monitor legislation in most of the standing legislative and interim study committees. David concentrates his law practice in civil matters.
From North State Journal
The long session at the North Carolina General Assembly lived up to its name, with Gov. Roy Cooper signing his first budget as governor after three years of gridlock from the last enacted spending plan from the legislature.
The session also included massive redistricting efforts for state legislative and U.S. House districts, a landmark energy bill, a comprehensive Farm Act, education reform and several economic development projects.
Navigating the philosophical, ideological and political currents to promote and prevent bills during this session were over 750 registered lobbyists. They were all considered as the North State Journal sought to determine the top lobbyists in North Carolina for a second year.
The top lobbyists list this year also includes the top legislative liaisons, a group of legislative influencers who advocate for the policies of state institutions, cabinet agencies and council of state offices. The North State Journal staff surveyed legislators, staffers, reporters and business leaders and parsed data on the clients represented by the registered lobbyists this year.
