Lane Ruhland

Senior Counsel, Husch Blackwell

Lane helps clients navigate state and federal political campaign finance law along with other election matters.

She advises professional associations and clubs, corporations and political campaigns, including presidential, congressional, gubernatorial, state Supreme Court candidates and political action committees (PACs). Clients rely on her guidance for issues of political giving, campaign finance, election law and legislative matters. Her experience includes serving on the team that represented the Republican National Committee (RNC) in the 2016 presidential election recount in Wisconsin. Lane also developed a comprehensive election integrity program for the state of Wisconsin during Governor Scott Walker's 2014 re-election campaign, and she has assisted in drafting more than 100 legislative proposals. Her current guidance to clients spans:

  • Campaign finance
  • Election law
  • Administrative law
  • Traditional lobbying

Lane enjoys helping clients navigate the intersection of law, politics and media awareness. She understands that due diligence in this legal sector must go beyond compliance and encompass campaign image. In addition to a focus on campaign finance matters, her career has centered on navigating the complex administrative rulemaking process, which has given her a unique knowledge of where administrative law and legislative matters align. Legal teams and clients appreciate her as a team player who always has candidates and end goals in mind.
