Government Relations & Advocacy


We know politics. Our team of dedicated advocates are experienced problem-solvers when it comes to getting things done on Capitol Hill and in state and local executive offices. We help clients develop relationships with lawmakers, regulators, and other key influencers and then build out plans to achieve policy “wins” that make a real difference.


Led by Joshua Lamel, a former Democratic House chief of staff and counsel to Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, our team of lobbyists is uniquely equipped to make your case on Capitol Hill through integrated advocacy campaigns.
