Our Services

We advocate. We negotiate. We work the Capitol - inside & out.

Strategic Positioning

We do more than represent you. We position you as an expert resource for government officials. This increases your credibility and long-term effectiveness in the public policy arena. 

Networking & Business Development

We make connections. Our clients range from Fortune 500s to non-profits, educational institutions to health systems, local governments to associations. This gives us a unique opportunity to bring clients and contacts together for collaborative opportunities and to strengthen positioning for shared interests

State Lobbying

We’re in the fight. We actively lobby or monitor every major issue in the Michigan Legislature. We also consult regularly with the governor’s office, department heads, legislative leaders, and political operatives to provide you the intelligence which affects your agenda.

Regulatory & Legal Services

Have a problem with the bureaucracy? We’ve successfully handled numerous regulatory matters including licensing, liquor law, gaming, environmental, financial services, telecom, and energy matters. Our rare combination of legal skills and political savvy helps us resolve issues before they make headlines.

Federal & Local Consulting 

Your interests don’t stop in Lansing – and neither do we. We routinely work with Michigan’s influential Congressional delegation, the majority of whom came from the Michigan Legislature, and with a variety of federal agencies. We also have strong contacts with local officials across Michigan.

Legislative Monitoring & Drafting

We track all bills in Michigan and we can also identify significant legislation prior to formal introduction, giving you a crucial heads up. Our in-house attorneys also provide legislative drafting and procedural expertise which is often outsourced at other lobbying firms.

Multi-State Lobbying Campaigns

Do your interests cross state lines? We have a deep network of lobbyists in other states. We can help you manage your lobbying campaign on a multi-state basis. This ensures cost savings and messaging consistency.

Campaign Finance & Non-Profit Strategy

We’re on the leading edge of the Citizens United campaign finance revolution. Our campaign finance experts work with clients and candidates on PAC strategy, PAC development, and the appropriate use of non-profits to educate the public and influence the policy debate.

Digital Advocacy 

We change conversations. Each issue has its own ecosystem of assumptions, terminology, and influencers. We use in-house and outside social media assets to steer the conversation in your favor – before we start talking to legislators. 

Special Event Production 

Having a Capitol Day? How about a fundraiser or reception? We routinely host our own special events and assist clients with theirs. We know what works – and what doesn’t. Our logistics staff sill make your next event memorable – and productive.

Coalitions

We create communities of interest. We help you leverage employees, suppliers, customers, and other allies to build momentum.
