About Jim Davidson

Jim Davidson is chair of the Public Policy practice group at Polsinelli and Managing Partner of the firm's Washington, D.C. office. He counsels companies and business associations on how they can achieve their goals regarding legislation before Congress or regulations before federal agencies. His clients include Fortune 500 companies and leading industry groups.

For more than two decades Mr. Davidson has effectively represented clients that include a broad range of companies and industry associations on issues involving taxation, agency regulations, government information policy, media regulation, privacy, regulation of advertising, healthcare, appropriations and budget policy. Mr. Davidson is one of the nation's leading authorities on media and advertising law. In 2011, a coalition he directed prevented adoption by federal agencies of a new standard that would have barred advertising of most food products, including most cereals, whole wheat bread and low-fat yogurt. Another coalition persuaded Congress not to tax certain types of advertising to help pay for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In April 2012, Reuters described him as “one of the most powerful lobbyists in Washington” and “the point man for the advertising industry in free speech issues.”
