Blank Rome Government Relations Beating Recession Odds
According to Roll Call, Blank Rome Government Relations LLC was among the few lobbying shops that showed an increase in revenues in 2008, despite the recession.
Blank Rome showed a big jump in revenue, growing 17.3 percent in 2008. The firm saw its revenue grow from $8.1 million to $9.5 million and beating the firm’s internal goal of 15 percent, according to Peter Peyser.
Blank Rome’s gains were especially notable in the tough economic climate with 16 out of the top 25 lobbying firms saw losses, proving lobbying firms are not recession proof.
