Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP is a lobbying and law firm based in the United States with 250 attorneys and policy consultants in 11 offices across the western U.S. and in Washington, D.C.

History[edit]

The firm was founded in 1968 by Norman Brownstein, Jack Hyatt, and Steve Farber in Denver, Colorado.[1] In 1995, the firm expanded their services to include lobbying.[2] On January 1, 2007, Brownstein Hyatt & Farber merged with Schreck Bignone and the new firm was named Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck. Frank Schreck is a former chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission.[3]

As of April 2016, the firm has 11 offices across the United States. In 2015, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck earned US$25.7 million for lobbying, making it the second-largest lobbying firm in the nation behind Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld.[1] A 2016 article in the Denver Post called the firm "a national juggernaut".[1]

Brownstein experienced a record year in 2015 with its revenue increasing by nearly 7 percent to $172.2 million and its net income increasing by 6 percent to $58.4 million. The firm’s profits per partner increased nearly 7 percent to $899,000.[4] Brownstein credits this growth to increased client demand and executing on its defined business strategy.
