Government Affairs & Communications


The government policy and political process can seem daunting. We work closely with our clients to explain and advise you through the entire legislative process. We alert you to legislative and administrative actions, bring you in on election intelligence, and give strategic counsel. At the same time, we uncover opportunities for our clients to broaden or expand your business or legislative agenda.

crisis communication

The best way to address a crisis is to be prepared.  Having a plan in place, having the messaging ready, and knowing assignments are keys to defending your reputation if something were to happen. Our team has appeared on numerous state, national and international media outlets on behalf of clients.  When facing an attack on your reputation, we are the experts you can depend on to help you through it.

state contracts & Funding Sources

Working with government can be difficult to navigate. Companies often waste valuable time and resources because they are unfamiliar with the process or the key decision makers. We assist our clients in developing effective responses to agency procurements. We work closely with you through the entire process to create materials and put a strategic plan in place that will give you the best opportunity for success in the selection process.

coalition building

We work with our clients to build strong, broad-based coalitions to advocate for your objectives. We create advocacy partners who, together,
help influence decision makers. We have worked with business leaders, small business owners, investors, trade associations, elected officials and local organizations in achieving client goals.  Our expertise in messaging and logistics have been a proven formula in our client success.

public relations

We understand the value of a strong communication plan, and its role in legislative and market success. We work with our clients to identify key elements of their story and build upon it. Our strong reputation with the national, state and local media allows us to help tell a client’s story in their own words, and from a source that is trusted in the press.
