Testimonials

Lanny’s clients have included CEO’s, Fortune 500 companies, political leaders, lobbyists, and individuals facing a crisis.

“Lanny Davis has a unique combination of extensive experience as a first-rate practicing attorney and expertise in dealing with the media, political leaders and the legislative process. That’s much needed in the age of the internet and get it first before getting it right journalism.” – President Bill Clinton, The Hill.com Briefing Room, April 19, 2010

“Lanny Davis is one of the most resourceful, creative and tenacious problem-solvers I have ever had the privilege of knowing. And, his range of contacts is extraordinarily and seemingly limitless–at all points on the political spectrum. A remarkable talent.” – Theodore Olson, former Solicitor General of the United States under President George W. Bush, April 19, 2010.

“Lanny is a person who has a wide-ranging and eclectic group of friendships, and when he takes on a tough task, whether it’s defending [President Bill] Clinton or something else, he can keep going. Sort of like a Timex—he takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’.” – Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove.

“Lanny Davis has shown he understands the dangers from the left and right of the politics of personal destruction.” – Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT)

“Davis is that rare insider who is capable of being fair to all sides. He is willing to cast blame on his own party, his own candidates and even his own self, along with those on the other side who deserve blame. This perceptive look into the Washington world of equal opportunity scandal mongering must be read by Democrats and Republicans alike–and by all fair minded people who want to end the politics of mutually assured destruction.” – Professor Alan M. Dershowitz, Harvard Law School

“In this polarized nation of 280 million souls, Lanny Davis is one of a select few who maintains a personal affection for both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush…. Lanny’s exposé of ‘gotcha’ politics is not just a lament about the lack of civility in American public discourse. It’s a compelling call for a truce in our ‘war room’ style of perpetual campaigning.” – Carl M. Cannon, White House Correspondent, National Journal

“Whether it’s a debate on the war, judges, taxes, or almost anything else, the ability of Americans to engage each other with respect and dignity is being lost. Lanny Davis has been on the front lines of some of the sharpest political debates in our nation’s history. We should listen and learn from his experience and observations.” – Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

“I am confident that Lanny Davis speaks for most Americans when he decries the coarsening of our political discourse and the dysfunction it has created in Washington. Hopefully, his work will serve as a wake-up call and prompt a better, more productive kind of national political leadership.” – Former Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN)

“To many conservatives, Lanny Davis is a cherished anomaly: a thoughtful liberal, a decent guy, and a fair-minded Democratic operative who loves his country even more than he loves his party.” – Michael Medved, nationally syndicated conservative talk show host and author of Right Turns.

“My friend Lanny Davis and I disagree on nearly everything political, but he is an opponent conservatives respect because he argues with sincerity, passion, and great intellect.” – Richard A. Viguerie, author of the book, Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause

“Davis sees a new center majority of fiscal conservatism, social liberalism and cultural moderation and toleration–an ideological mix that happens to be where most Americans are and want their leaders to be.” – Al From, Founder & CEO, Democratic Leadership Council

“Many lawyers perceive their role as giving you legal advice. And basically, they view [their advice] as ‘this is how a court would adjudicate,’ Lanny goes to a different place and says, ‘Companies have more at stake than just winning in a court of law. Oftentimes winning in a court of public opinion is just as important both legally and commercially.’ It’s fundamental to his counsel.” – Royal Caribbean CEO Richard Fain (American Lawyer 2010)
