Specializing in Governmental & Public Relations, Issues Management, Regulatory Counsel, and Association Management 

 

FIRM 

HISTORY

John J. Federico has worked in the lobbying field in Kansas since 1994.  Upon graduating from the Washburn University School of Law, Federico went to work for Pete McGill & Associates.  In 1997, Federico left McGill and started Federico Consulting, Inc.: A Public Affairs Group.  

 

In 2015, Stephen Duerst began working with Federico.  In 2020, Duerst became a named partner, and the firm officially changed its name to Federico // Duerst Consulting Group, and is now considered to be one of the premier lobbying firms in the state.  

Federico // Duerst attributes its' success to several equally important factors including: a talented, well-educated, creative staff; a strong commitment to developing personal, meaningful relationships with legislators on “both sides of the aisle”; respect from, and a good working relationship with, fellow lobbyists; and an outstanding reputation built on honesty, professionalism, and tenacity. The firm is committed to delivering value to the clients it represents by providing the necessary time, talent and attention required to accomplish the goals set forth by the client, in the most professional and effective manner possible.
