Radcliffe and Associates have deep roots in Nebraska politics. The preceding firm, Tews and Radcliffe, had David Tew as a senior partner. He served in the Nebraska Legislature in the 1950’s. Walt Radcliffe practiced law with Max Kier, a former Speaker of Nebraska’s bicameral legislature in the 1930’s, and Roland Luedtke, former Speaker, Lt. Governor, and Mayor of Lincoln. Radcliffe also served as Assistant Clerk to the Legislature, Counsel to the Speaker, Counsel to the Judiciary Committee, and Counsel to the Banking, Commerce, and Insurance Committee. Korby Gilbertson joined the firm as an attorney and lobbyist in 1996 after being part of the support staff for Radcliffe and Associates for seven years. Justin Brady joined the firm as an attorney and lobbyist in 2003 after being part of the support staff for five years.
The key elements of successful lobbying are credibility, access, and an understanding of the legislative system. We spend our time during the legislative session in the hallways and rotunda of the Capitol. We are here to represent the needs of our clients and are available to legislators to answer any questions they may have about issues. Our understanding of Nebraska’s legislative system is based on many years of participation in the legislative system and those processes.
