The District Policy Group goes far beyond providing access to the Hill and federal agencies. We deliver effective, comprehensive D.C. representation through creative, passionate, and dedicated client service. Our innovative strategic planning and government relations program execution includes advising and guiding clients on the best course of action, developing key messaging and leveraging the most advantageous timing. Our highly experienced professionals embrace the importance of client goals and work beside our clients to help them achieve results. We provide the full spectrum of legislative and regulatory public policy analysis and support, alongside direct advocacy, lobbying, and government relations services, with a particular focus on health care, agriculture, trade and other key drivers of the nation’s economy.

Turning ideas into action

Our bipartisan team consists of former congressional staffers and in-house government relations professionals fluent in the language and processes of federal legislative and regulatory policymaking. We help clients establish relationships and credibility with policymakers through our long-standing reputation for providing reliable and accurate information. We also match our approach and requests to policymaker interests and inclinations—a tactic that sets us apart and earns us their trust as pragmatic, dependable advocates.

Dedicated, scalable teams

Each client is assigned a dedicated team of professionals with specific knowledge, experience, and relationships relevant to their specific government relations goals. As circumstances and needs dictate, the full resources of the District Policy Group can be brought to bear.

Strategy plus action

We apply a deep understanding of the current political, fiscal, and policy environment to develop for each client an individualized strategic plan to meet their policy and advocacy objectives. We collaborate with clients to implement action plans and identify the specific group of policymakers to target for outreach. As part of this work, we design the materials and messages that will resonate with those policymakers and help garner engagement and support.

Tailored resources and support

Should the need arise, clients have access to the District Policy Group Advisory Board, a group of senior lawyers and professionals with broad knowledge of public relations, communications, state-level government relations, health economics, and food, drug, and medical device policy. The District Policy Group, housed within the national law firm Drinker Biddle, can also provide clients with access to hundreds of attorneys across 13 offices and 14 industry groups nationwide.

The District Policy Group offers all the experience, insight, support, resources, and skills needed to help bring clients’ business, organizational, and policy goals to life.
