Chip Case’s Jefferson Monroe shop takes in $70k in 2016 Q2

Another in the growing numbers of small or one-person lobbying shops is Chip Case‘s solo practice, Jefferson Monroe. Another thing that’s growing: his client list. According to recently released lobbying compensation reports, the firm took in an estimated $70,000 between April 1 and June 30 – not bad for three months’ work.

Without a doubt the anchor of the Case’s client list was a pair of healthcare interests, Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida, which contributed as much as $19,999 to Jefferson Monroe’s coffers for legislative work, and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, which pitched in up to $9,999 for legislative and the same amount for executive branch representation for an estimated total of $10,000 altogether.

Case also received substantial compensation from Florida Power & Light, U.S. Sugar and, each among Jefferson Monroe’s 19-client legislative roster. Each group paid up to $9,999 in fees in Q2 for his work.

The aforementioned FPL as well as Florida Independent Pharmacy Network, Smart Horizons Online, EZPAWN Florida and Association Capital Resources ponied up for up to $9,999 each for executive compensation for influence work done on the Capitol’s plaza level as well as in the labyrinthine network of state governmental administrative buildings across Tallahassee. Together, their contracts with Jefferson Monroe were worth an estimated $25,000 this spring and early summer.

Lobbying firms are require by Florida statute to filed quarterly compensation reports. In most cases, they are allowed to simply report a range — e.g. $10,000-$19,999 — in lieu to the specific amount.
