Testimonials

As a long-time client of Rocky’s and his team, we can think of no better partner to work with in Carson City than Carrara Nevada. Nevada REALTORS® have long been considered a political powerhouse in the Legislative Building, and that has come in large part to our partnership with Carrara Nevada. Their strategic vision that helps to position the REALTORS® on key issues inside the building is central to our organization’s rise to power, and their keen attention in keeping REALTORS® focused on real estate and housing issues has been important to ensuring that REALTORS® are relevant in the State Legislature. The respect that Rocky and his team command in Carson City from both Republicans and Democrats is evident every time we walk into the rooms in the Legislative Building. Nevada REALTORS® would not be in the position we are today without the partnership with Carrara Nevada.

When we brought Rocky and the Carrara team on to help Anheuser-Busch (A-B) with an extremely difficult fight, we knew they would make a great addition to our team. What we didn’t know was how quickly they’d earn our trust, how strategic their counsel and advice would be, and how committed they’d be to helping us achieve success. They are our trusted advisors and fearless fighters. Can’t imagine working without them.

THREE MOST IMPORTANT NON-ELECTED: Rocky Finseth has built a powerhouse over the years and you can’t deny his influence and effectiveness. His clients, including Pharma and Realtors, are always in the middle of big policy decisions – Pharma is probably relieved it won’t be so front and center now that a certain legislator is gone. Rocky is also a booming voice within the biz community and that’s important given the amount of anti-biz legislation being pushed by Dems. Overall he’s a straightshooter and always willing to work with you to find a solution.

I just wanted to send a quick note to highlight just how great Rocky and Jenny were during the Nevada Legislative Session. They did an amazing job. I was working and watching SB 296, late in the session, and Rocky was instrumental in getting this bill passed. It was a herculean effort, and Rocky delivered for GSK and the industry. Rocky, great job and I appreciate all your hard work you do for PhRMA and PhRMA members companies.

As CEO for the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, I’ve had the experience of working with a number of top tier lobbyists in Nevada. As we approached the 2015 session, the HCC wanted to raise its profile and involvement in the state’s legislative process. After interviewing a number of firms, the Board opted to contract with Rocky Finseth and Carrara Nevada to serve as our legislative lobbying firm. They quickly proved themselves as the right choice for the HCC. Rocky and his team provided exemplary and prompt customer service and instantly turned the HCC into a pro-active legislative force. Using their broad and influential network, Rocky and his team embraced the HCC’s diverse advocacy committee and inserted us into the legislative process on an array of critical issues relevant to the HCC’s business-oriented membership. The HCC’s Board made a wise decision in selecting Carrara Nevada, and we look forward to growing our organization into a political force with their guidance and direction in the coming years.

PhRMA has lobbyists in all 50 states, and state level government affairs for our trade association is a top priority for our national organization. Nevada is one of those key states. Our long-time relationship with Rocky and his team have provided PhRMA and our members companies with unfettered access to the key players in the state, and his strategic guidance on issues critical to the industry is incredibly helpful.
Flo Kahn, PhRMA
I have the pleasure of working with many lobbying teams across the country. Hands down, the team at Carrara Nevada is some of the best in the country when it comes to lobbying and working on our issues. They show no quit, they are constantly adjusting tactics based on the situation at hand and are working hard on Altria’s behalf in the halls of Carson City. I have personally experienced their range of influence inside the halls of the Legislative Building, and it is impressive. Their ability to communicate to both Democrats and Republicans is as good as it gets in Nevada.
Mark King, Altria

We work with firms across the country, and I consider Rocky and his team one of the best in terms of their knowledge of the players in Nevada, the lay of the land, and recognizing how issues that PhRMA may be pursuing in Nevada will positively or negatively impact the pharmaceutical industry and our member companies. When it comes to Nevada, there is no one better than Carrara Nevada.

The team at Carrara Nevada does a superb job at keeping me abreast of legislation impacting our industry. Their advise on issues impacting the physical therapy industry in the Nevada Legislature is critical to our overall success. Session after session, Rocky and his team have delivered for us.

As President of the Nevada Land Title Association, it has been my pleasure to work with Rocky Finseth and his team for over a decade. The title insurance industry plays an important role in the real estate market. Our needs are very complex and critical to the continued health of the Nevada real estate economic engine. Having a firm that understands the depth and unique needs of our industry, in addition to being able to maneuver our member companies through the challenging maze of the legislative process, has created an important partnership. I believe that the true measure of a lobbying firm is the tenure with their clientele. The Nevada Land Title Association is proud to have one of the longest running relationships with Carrara Nevada, spanning nearly 20 years. No matter what the issue may be, Carrara Nevada ensures that our members' voices are heard inside and outside of the State Capitol. Regardless of how difficult the issue may be, Rocky and his team are constantly by our side representing the interests of the NLTA.
