John F. Tanner & ASSOCIATES

A full-service law firm located in Alabama specializing in governmental relations and providing legal, lobbying, political and consulting services to clients who need assistance with state, national and international governments, agencies and bureaucracies.  John is also a registered lobbyist enabling the firm to offer complete governmental affairs services to our clients.

We stand at the intersection of business and government representing businesses, corporations and vendors in procurements and those who want to do business with state government.  We work with the state legislative and executive branches, state regulatory agencies and constitutional officers.  We also maintain extensive contacts throughout state government and state agencies as well as with many city and county governments.



John’s clients are from all sectors of business, but our philosophy is to keep our client base small enough to afford individualized and personalized attention to address their specific needs. Being available, accessible and responsive to his client’s needs is the cornerstone of his practice.  With hundreds of departments, agencies, boards and commissions, the maze of bureaucracies can be daunting. We work with our clients to determine their particular goal then develop a strategy to help guide them through the bureaucracy to achieve their goal in the most cost-effective way possible
