We offer a Variety of Services

If you have a cause, the team at Gerstman PLLC is here to give you a voice. Our team of lobbyists and government relations professionals have decades of experience fighting for clients at the State, City, and local levels. Through extensive research, strategic planning, and targeted outreach, we identify lawmakers and key decision makers at the forefront of an issue and work alongside them to create positive results that benefit your industry.


The world of real estate development can be challenging to navigate without the support of strategic partners. Working alongside all necessary stakeholders, including government officials and community members, Gerstman PLLC can help you to smoothly achieve your individual goals. This includes but is not limited to legal support, engaging with pertinent agencies (DOB, DOT, SBS, DEP, DPR), and achieving entitlements through a variety of processes (BSA, LPC, and ULURP).

Our longstanding history in both State and local government means that we have our finger on the pulse of what’s happening within our communities. As a result, we’ve developed a distinct ability to match government funding goals, case-specific initiatives, and/or private resources with individual client projects. We consider this our “one of a kind approach” to connecting the dots. Our services include:


At Gerstman PLLC we believe success begins with strategy. From reviewing an organization’s goals to creating a more focused mission, we are here to help you engineer the basis for a great proposal. In addition to conducting a feasibility study to determine your grant-readiness and likelihood of winning grant funding, we can provide you with targeted research to identify appropriate funding sources and opportunities that fit your needs.


In order to receive state or Federal funding, both nonprofits and for-profit entities must be registered within specific databases. Our team is committed to not only crafting compelling proposals that meet the objectives of each individual funding agency, but also to making sure your organization maintains all necessary registrations and documentation. 


If you choose to author your grant proposals in-house, our crucial proofreading and editing services ensure that your draft is not only grammatically flawless, but also follows the specific, and often complicated, instructions set forth by the funder(s). 


When it comes to grants, authoring a proposal is just the beginning. After every submission we utilize a follow up strategy that includes tracking a proposal’s movement, addressing issues as they arise, and communicating with appropriate funding agencies or entities.

Once you successfully complete the application process our firm can provide on-going post award support in the form of grant management. This covers a variety of services including maintenance of registrations, site visits, vendor bids, contracting, budgets, allocations, and quarterly progress reports. In other words, we handle the paperwork so that you can do what you do best: help your organization succeed!

Grant services can be broken out individually or bundled depending on the needs of an organization. 

Through long-standing relationships with agencies, government officials, and community members, we help to highlight and advocate for our clients in the most meaningful of ways- by bringing to light the issues they care about. 

Whether you’re a private business, trade association, professional society, advocacy group, or not-for-profit organization, having someone on your side with fast access to decision makers, regulators, and legislators is the key to achieving success. Through a variety of services including legislative lobbying, media relations, and community outreach, our team  is ready to help. 

When it comes to building a business, the concept of success extends far beyond the exchange of dollars and cents. Acquiring meaningful capital requires an ability to understand your market, as well as those who exist within it. From government systems to regulatory policies, we empower our clients to recognize and make use of opportunities for growth.

Our team is proud to offer a range of support options for clients including initiating dialogue with regulators and elected officials at both the state and local levels, procurement guidance, pricing, labor, and minority-owned ventures, general business planning, and recommendations pertaining to industry-specific best practices. Our efforts encompass a variety of areas including financing, franchises, land acquisitions, new markets, public assets, and more.
