Meet Our Expert – Matt Gehring, Esq.

While Matt Gehring, Esq., Manager of Compliance Services, is the newest member of our Compliance Department, he isn’t new to lobbying compliance or State and Federal Communications, Inc. Three years ago, he joined our team as a Manager of Research Services and recently became a Manager of Compliance Services.

During his time in the Research Department, Matt oversaw entries covering the Western United State and worked to ensure we have the most up-to-date information available to clients.

In his new role as a Manager of Compliance Services, Matt interacts significantly more with clients and lobbyists, as well as the systems that are used in different states.

“In the Compliance Department, you work with and learn the different filing systems and rules. You talk with clients, help them to the best of your ability, and get all the information you need so you can file reports correctly,” he explained.

Matt is an expert in the Compliance Department with his familiarity with the systems and processes that we use to assist our clients.

“The more you do something, the more you understand the quirks and nuances of it,” he said.

In those cases, when those quirks and nuances cause problems when filing reports, Matt can work directly with those states and organizations to advocate for our clients, and to let them know what may need to be fixed, clarified, or improved upon.

“In some states, there are so many peculiarities with what the state asks that it obfuscates what the state actually wants to be reported. It’s common to touch base with states every couple of months to iron out these peculiarities,” he explained, “even more so in when dealing with problematic filing systems. We are proud of our ability to work with states to ensure we are providing the best service possible.”
