North State Journal has recognized Nexsen Pruet Public Policy attorney David Ferrell as one of North Carolina's Top 25 lobbyists.
The publication surveyed legislators, business leaders and reporters and has gathered data on clients represented by lobbyists to narrow the list down to less than 4% of registered lobbyists in the state.
David is a North Carolina registered lobbyist and has experience in state, local and executive branch lobbying, grass roots campaigns, and regulatory compliance. His government relations experience includes a diverse group of clients and a wide range of issues, which has allowed him to appear in and monitor legislation in most of the standing legislative committees and interim study committees. David concentrates his law practice in civil matters.

We developed a metric for client quality based on many factors, including market capitalization, business trade publication rankings, legislative success, and size.
