Government relations is an increasingly vital part of a business strategy that is sometimes overlooked by even the most politically inclined business owners. Businesses often have an attorney and accountant on staff or within arms reach, but neglect the opportunity to work with legislative decision-makers to ensure laws and policies coming down from any level of government are effective and encourage growth and stability.
An organized and consistent government affairs strategy is an essential part of today’s business plan and offers a tremendous advantage to those who have one. When you make it a priority to educate and communicate with the legislators and leaders making the laws that regulate and govern your industry, you not only create an opportunity to strengthen your business, but to strengthen your industry and community as well.
We work with corporations, small businesses, trade associations, and local governments to deliver government relations strategies in order to make measurable impacts on the bottom line and ensure stable and fair regulatory and policy environments.
Whether maintaining the discreet, but valuable, service of legislative monitoring or implementing a full-scale lobbying effort on a particular issue or bill, engagement at the necessary levels of government allows you to ensure you’ll have a seat at the table in critical discussions on the issues that affect your bottom line and the health of your business, customers, employees, industry and community.
We know that, whether the deck is stacked for you or against you, anything can happen. We work with our clients to maintain ongoing offensive strategies while being prepared to go on the defensive at any time. We also know what it’s like to dive in front of a moving train and slow it down when no one thought it was possible. We don’t take outcomes for granted, and we are ready for anything.
Our approach is simple. We work with clients to create a comprehensive and unified plan of action on both an offensive and defensive level so we can lay the groundwork for existing and future known and unknown objectives, while simultaneously pursuing immediate needs. We maintain our personal credibility and integrity at all times in order to offer the best reputation management and success for our clients.
