Deep legislative, budgetary, and regulatory policy expertise working in your best interest.

Why have us as your Public Policy team?

We go beyond lobbying and also deliver a comprehensive public policy solution that sets clients up for success. Our extensive experience makes it possible to anticipate legislative or policy developments, allowing us to advise you on the best way to achieve your business or policy objective. Whether your goals are initiating or influencing legislation, monitoring, or protecting previous policy successes, we have relationships with state and local decision-makers, analysts, agency staff, board members, commissions, and other bodies that make public policy. If your interests require the development of legislation or items in the budget, we can provide drafting support and then shepherd it through the legislative process to a positive outcome.

  • Our comprehensive and ongoing budget analysis informs our strategic approach

  • We understand the ins and outs of Virginia’s budget, and the decision-making process of policymakers
