SACRAMENTO—Capitol Advocacy announced today that it has partnered with SoCal Advocacy, LLC, a sister company, to provide clients with full-service government relations and lobbying in Southern California.
“California continues to be a trend-setter of progressive policies. With our partner in SoCal Advocacy, our clients have trusted guidance at every level of government in the state,” said Capitol Advocacy Managing Partner John Latimer. “With decades of experience navigating Southern California’s policy and politics, our presence in the halls of the Capitol and our combined deep relationships, we will provide intelligent, trusted advice and effective advocacy that will give clients a competitive edge and coverage from Sacramento to San Diego.”
For over 20 years, Capitol Advocacy has represented a diverse array of clients at the State Capitol. “Recognizing that city and county lobbying and business development is equally important, we want to ensure that our clients have access to an effective team at every level. That’s why we are partnering with SoCal Advocacy to give our clients knowledgeable advocates in Southern California who will coordinate their efforts with ours in Sacramento,” added Kristy Wiese, Partner.
Edward J. Rendon, long time labor leader and business advocate, founded SoCal Advocacy in 2021 after recognizing a partnership with deep-rooted knowledge in both local and state politics and policy was missing from the advocacy equation. As the firm’s sister company, SoCal Advocacy provides full-service government relations and public affairs throughout the Southern California region from Los Angeles to the Inland Empire and from Orange County to San Diego.
“Ed Rendon is a true collaborator,” said Supervisor Kathryn Barger of Los Angeles County’s 5th Supervisorial District. “SoCal Advocacy will do well navigating clients through the government process.”
“California’s political landscape is dynamic and local governments are no exception to that,” said Ed Rendon, principal of SoCal Advocacy. “After years working on state legislative issues with the Capitol Advocacy, the creation of SoCal Advocacy will better serve the firm’s clients with local government relations services in the greater Los Angeles region.”
