In 1997, Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard, McPherson & Hand, Chartered, was the biggest grossing lobbying practice. However, Verner Liipfert was heavily reliant on income from its tobacco lobbying. As a result, no one has been as hard hit by the decline in tobacco revenues. Verner Liipfert’s income has dropped to $15.95 million, a 15 percent decline from 1998. With the tobacco money all but gone, Verner Liipfert is far less exposed to variations in the market. Just 26 percent of its income comes from its top five clients, and no sector accounts for more than a quarter of Verner Liipfert’s income. Verner Liipfert employed 85 lobbyists in 1999.
