Tripp Scott PA’s work on behalf of charter schools this legislative session likely helped boost the bottom line.

The firm’s government affairs team of Edward Pozzuoli, Lindsey Raphael, James Scott, and Corey Staniscia earned at least $201,000 — an average of $103,000 for legislative work and $98,000 for executive branch work — during the second quarter of 2017.

The lobby team could earn a maximum of $225,995 — a maximum of $117,997 for legislative work and $107,998 for executive branch work — during the second quarter, year, according to an analysis of compensation reports conducted by

Lobbyists who are registered to represent clients before Florida’s legislative or executive branches are required to submit reports detailing their client roster and compensation each quarter. Reports for the second quarter are due to the state on Aug. 14.

The team’s top paying client, both for legislative and executive branch work during the three-month period, was Charter Schools USA. The Fort Lauderdale-based charter school company paid the firm $58,000 for legislative work during the second quarter of 2017. It paid the same sum for executive branch services during the same time period.

Records show other top legislative clients during the second quarter were B&L Transportation, which paid an average of $25,000; Broward County, which paid an average of $15,000; and The Balmoral Condominium Association, which paid an average of $5,000 for legislative services.

B&L Transportation and Broward County were among the firm’s top-paying executive branch clients during the second quarter, paying an average of $25,000 and $15,000 respectively.

All told, Tripp Scott has seven legislative and seven executive branch clients.
