City & State NY profiled Manatt for a feature on the top ten lobbying firms in New York City by compensation. Manatt’s Katie Schwab, co-chair of the firm’s New York City government, policy and government contracts practice, spoke with the publication about the firm’s success. When asked what it takes to be a successful lobbyist in New York City, Schwab responded:
“A successful lobbyist has a combination of skills. You need to be a quick study. You need to be enthusiastic. You need to be genuinely interested in collaborating and finding solutions that work both for the public and for the institution of the city and, of course, for the clients you represent. That’s the challenge, and that’s what makes it interesting and fun. And I feel very proud of our team here. This practice is about the collective strength of the people here.”
