This work is aimed at identifying the factors of success of MP’s lobbying activity in the State Duma of the Russian Federation. Such a set of factors as the deputy's place in the internal structure of the parliament is under consideration. The existing approaches of assessing the success of lobbyists' activity are analyzed and the conclusion that there is a large set of limitations of such studies is made. The literature review on the success of lobbying in the legislative bodies of the United States, the European Union, and the Scandinavian countries is made. The existing literature on the topic of lobbying in Russia is analyzed, and on the basis of this analysis, possible factors of success of lobbyists' activity are identified. A quantitative analysis of the success of the deputies-lobbyists in the context of the State Duma of the Russian Federation in the period from the fourth to the sixth convocation in five areas (agricultural, fuel and energy, business, financial and trade) is carried out. It is concluded that there are such factors of success as the membership of the deputy in the faction of the party of power, the number of deputies who initiated the bill, the membership of the deputy in the responsible and profile committees on the legislative initiatives. It is also concluded that the factor of time of introducing the draft law does not affect the success of lobbying activity of both deputies of the United Russia faction and non-members of it.
