Illinois Chicago & Springfield

For CPS, Chicago isn't the Second City. We have a powerful team on the ground, whose practice extends beyond the city limits to Springfield and any corner of the state.

Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies (CPS) offers a full complement of government affairs services in Illinois, helping multinational companies, top trade associations, and dedicated nonprofits reduce risk and seize opportunity at all levels of government.


With decades of high-level public and private sector experience, our bipartisan team of government relations professionals offers skilled legislative and executive branch advocacy, sophisticated policy analysis and regulatory monitoring, strategic consulting, and proactive crisis management services.

CPS Illinois represents a diverse group of clients that includes Fortune 500 companies with significant operations in the State of Illinois, as well as successful businesses of every size. Our government affairs professionals are accustomed to providing expert advice and counsel in settings that range from the large corporate boardroom to the emerging technology start-up.

As part of a full-service law firm with one of the largest state attorneys general practice in the nation, Cozen O’Connor’s Illinois lobbyists are able to draw upon the talents of hundreds of attorneys across our 31 offices, offering our clients unparalleled access to subject matter experts and regulatory counsel. The CPS federal practice also allows our team to work at all three levels of government (local, state, and federal), in contrast to most state-based lobbying practices.

We have the experience, contacts, and technical expertise necessary to mobilize Illinois’ most influential stakeholders and effect political and legislative change. We look forward to helping your organization advance its most important public policy objectives in Springfield, Chicago, Cook County, and other municipalities and local governments across the state.
