About GrayRobinson, P.A.

GrayRobinson is a full-service law and lobbying firm with 15 offices—all in Florida, with one exception in Washington, DC. The firm employs more than 250 attorneys, lobbyists, and consultants who represent clients on all manner of legal and legislative issues.

Florida, Plus One

GrayRobinson was founded in 1970, and the firm’s rapid expansion throughout Florida began about two decades later. By 2005, after a series of mergers and new office openings, the firm was 10 locations strong. In 2019, with 14 locations, the firm expanded its reach beyond the Sunshine State with the acquisition of Eris Group, LLC, a lobbying firm based in Washington, DC. Already a major player in the Florida legislative scene, this strategic move allowed GrayRobinson to broaden its client services to the federal level.

Law & Lobbying

As a full-service firm, GrayRobinson offers more than 80 unique practice and industry groups. From staples like litigation, corporate, labor and employment, and real estate practices to niche groups like aviation and drone law, food law, petroleum, and religious organizations, you’d be hard pressed to find an issue of law the firm can’t tackle. The firm serves state, national, and international clients including Fortune 500 companies, emerging businesses, lending institutions, local and state governments, developers, entrepreneurs, and individuals.

More than a law firm, GrayRobinson is one of the largest lobbying shops in Florida, with prominent clients such as Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, PepsiCo, the University of Central Florida, and the Florida Municipal Electric Association. The firm has also lobbied on behalf of local governments including Fort Myers, Orlando, Key West, and West Palm Beach. With its firsthand pulse on politics, the GrayRobinson Government Affairs and Lobbying Group publishes multiple newsletters to keep clients in the loop. GRay Matters: Capitol Beats is a weekly newsletter containing a roundup of Florida legislative news. GRay Matters: The Golden Apple is the group’s weekly lobbying newsletter reporting on the latest hot topics in Washington, DC.

Cheers! GrayRobinson has a number of highly regarded practice areas, but the firm’s Nationwide Alcohol Beverage Practice group has established an especially strong reputation—it even has its own social media presence.

Clients include familiar household names such as Bacardi USA, Costco Wholesale, Inc., Drizly, Margaritaville Enterprises LLC, MAST-Jägermeister S.E., and Publix Super Markets, Inc.
