Relationship Building

We build and sustain strong and productive relationships with Members of Congress, Congressional staff, and political appointees and career staff within federal agencies. We appreciate that access in Washington is important and believe that credibility, reliability, and valid information are the foundation of relationships on Capitol Hill and with federal agencies. We maintain an effective balance between access and substance, bringing the two together for our clients’ benefit.

We also are recognized for being highly skilled in making introductions to third-party stakeholders in the Washington, D.C. thought-leader community, so that partnerships can be formed to advance common interests and goals. We work with clients to establish collaborations and/or create coalitions to bring additional supporters to their public policy efforts. In the current challenging environment, such alliances, along with traditional policymaker relationship building, help to expand clients’ reach and influence.
