Florida Capitol - Angle - Large

The team at Anfield Consulting earned an estimated total of $500,000 between July and September, according to recently submitted compensation reports.

The firm’s highest-compensating clients include Parsons Brinckerhoff, which contributed between $30,000 and $39,999 for legislative representation, along with Florida Crystals and Thriller Tours, which both spent an estimated $25,000 for legislative work.

Several municipalities were also represented before lawmakers by the firm: Broward County, Polk County Board of County Commissioners, Indian River County Board of County Commissioners, and Monroe County Board of Commissioners each paid about $15,000 each in Q3. The city of Miami and Palm Beach County also contributed between $1.00 and $9,999 each.

In executive lobbying, Anfield’s biggest spenders were Everytown For Gun Safety Action Fund and Indian River County Board of County Commissioners, which each brought in about $15,000.

Healthcare interest groups such as the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and its Affiliates, the Baptist Health Corp., Healthcare Providers Coalition, and Health Business Solutions also brought in up to $9,999 in Q3 for executive advocacy.

Other notable clients such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and Palm Beach Aggregates contributed to executive and legislative efforts at a cost of about $30,000.

The firm’s Tallahassee advocacy efforts were spearheaded by lobbyists Albert BalidoFrank Bernardino, and Edgar Fernandez.

Combined, the firm represented 28 legislative clients and 22 in the executive branch during 2015 Q3.

State law requires lobbying firms to submit compensation reports quarterly. They are permitted in most cases to simply report an approximate range of client compensation — e.g., $1-$9,999 — instead of the specific dollar amount.
