Every day, thousands of companies lobby to persuade the government to rewrite laws in their favor, secure massive government loans, and fight for government contracts. Information on lobbying activity has been deliberately shrouded in convolution and secrecy making access to the information nearly impossible, until now.

With over 23 years of history, and growing, for more than 1.5 million U.S. lobbying contracts between corporations, organizations, and various interest groups and their lobbying firms, LobbyingData.com has captured 100% of the history of recorded American federal lobbying. We transform complex, unstructured government information into intuitive, highly adaptable datasets. Our database includes detailed information on more than 1.5 million lobbying contracts, 13,000 lobbying firms, 109,000 entities that have lobbied, and 77,000 unique lobbyists.

Through the use of advanced data science techniques, we have matched all entities across times, including matching publicly traded companies to their ticker symbols, making it easy to drill-down on the companies that have lobbied, learn how much they spent on lobbying, view the government agencies they lobbied, and most importantly – see the bills and specific issues lobbied on.

Our database and datasets have helped a variety of customers, from equity research analysts to asset managers, answer the following questions:
1. What bills and specific issues did company X lobby on?
2. What government agencies did company X target when they lobbied?
3. How much money did company X spend on lobbying?

“What would you do if you knew that GM was releasing an electric hummer two weeks before the public launch? What choices would you make if you found out that Kodak would be getting a massive government loan days before they received it?” asked LobbyingData founder and data scientist, Neil Bhatia. “Few alternative data providers in the political realm have been able to capture useful information on federal lobbying, let alone match each publicly traded company to their ticker symbols. LobbyingData is ready to change the future of informed decision making through a new and unique category of alternative data.”

LobbyingData’s robust data pipelines have made possible rapid real-time and historical analytics on lobbying, making our database and datasets a treasure trove for professionals across equity research, hedge funds, asset management, due diligence, and academia.
