Lobby revenue dips at Van Scoyoc Associates

K Street’s Van Scoyoc Associates saw its lobbying revenue fall for the second consecutive year in 2013.

The firm posted total lobbying revenue of $21.39 million, according to figures obtained by The Hill. That’s a $1.13 million drop from 2012.

Van Scoyoc made its name helping clients secure federal appropriations, but shifted toward guiding companies, universities and municipalities through the federal grant process after Congress banned earmarks in 2010.

The firm saw an 11 percent decline in its revenue from 2011 to 2012.

Van Scoyoc has more than 180 clients, including Alcoa, the world's third largest aluminum producer, the city of Long Beach, Calif., the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama, the National Space Grant Alliance and the National Safety Council. Last year, Van Scoyoc signed the American Cleaning Institution and the city of Clearwater, Fla.

In 2013, the firm signed 32 new clients and had 33 client terminations, mostly due to inactivity.
