Government Relations

general brochure

Governmental decisions are often critical to business success, and Strategies has the expertise and government relationships necessary to effectively represent clients and advocate for their interests in the lawmaking and regulatory process. We know how agendas are set and decisions are made in the legislative and administrative arms of government. We leverage this understanding to help our clients efficiently define, shape and navigate governmental decisions to obtain positive outcomes more quickly. And because our work is grounded in a business consulting approach, we develop a unique level of expertise and understanding of the issues our clients care about and the ways that policy, laws or regulations affect our client’s business and the broader community, industry, state or country. As such, we are viewed by our contacts within government as valuable, trusted sources of quality information and a bridge between government decision-makers and the people, organizations and communities impacted by those decisions.
