We helped pioneer the shift from "lobbying" to "public affairs" by recognizing that success stems from public engagement and transparent communications. Lobbying is just a subset of a public affairs strategy to position you in the best possible way with those who make decisions affecting your future. We realized years ago that lobbyists don't speak to the marketing department, which doesn't speak to the general counsel, which doesn't speak to the communications people.

So we integrate public policy work with communications. In a connected world, failure to integrate these disciplines dooms you to failure.

Everyone has experience. We deploy our experience in a research-based "get it done" approach that is cost-effective and efficient; partner-level service without the overhead of a sprawling entity. You don't work with a junior level account executive just out of school. You get the founders of the firm.
