Arthur Val Perkins

Foley & Lardner LLP

Arthur Val Perkins is a sought after lobbyist and litigator who focuses on real estate development issues, including forming municipal utility districts and other special districts that encourage and foster more rapid real estate development.

Val also handles related water and land use matters before the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Specializing in legislative lobbying, he represents clients before the Texas Legislature in business, construction, health care, homeowners association and housing matters. Val also represents clients with administrative concerns and in administrative hearings before state agencies, Houston area city councils and other local governmental entities.

In addition, clients hire Val to represent them before the Office of the Comptroller on franchise tax issues, where he handles SOAH administrative hearings and appeals to state district court.

Unlike most lobbyists who don’t have trial experience, Val represents clients from the identification of an issue all the way through litigation, if necessary. He handles other government litigation, as well, such as zoning or other land use disputes and condemnation matters.

Val is known as an excellent and persuasive writer, and with his background in legislative lobbying he is frequently hired to draft legislation and legislative amendments. For example, the Texas Community Association Advocates, an HOA Association, has hired Val to draft amendments and legislation on its broad ranging legislative matters.

He has the experience and knowledge to streamline and design the most effective legislative approaches and strategies. Val views legislative lobbying as a very personal, face to face connection with both business representatives and politicians.

He has decades of experience that benefit his clients, as well as the right relationships with statewide officeholders and the legislature. Val is prepared to work with clients to address the state’s most important horizon issues that will affect business, such as dealing with the water infrastructure in Texas, and water and land use issues.
