Melbourne International Airport retains GrayRobinson, P.A. — one of Florida’s largest and most respected law firms - to protect its interests and influence positive results in the state's capital.

But the airport's dealings with Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., go beyond its legal counsel. The airport maintains direct, strong and positive relationships with key legislators to keep them abreast of the airport’s needs to better serve the public.
