Legislative and Executive Branch Advocacy

Successful advocacy depends upon two fundamental factors:  a carefully designed, comprehensive strategy for presenting your position; and a team of advocates to ensure that your voice is heard by the right people, in the right place, and at the right time.

Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies has steered clients through scores of crucial and complex challenges across a range of industries.  Our professionals, who have worked in a variety of key legislative and executive branch positions and in the business world, are adept at helping you navigate the choppy waters of legislation, regulation, and government action at the federal, state, and local levels.

Unfavorable legislation under consideration in Congress?  Eager to propose new legislation or alter an existing law?  Proposed agency regulations poised to shake up your industry?

Government decision makers are motivated by a complex set of priorities.  Our diverse experience in and around government gives Cozen O'Connor Public Strategies an insider's perspective on how these priorities are established.  To successfully advocate for our clients, we couple that perspective with a thorough understanding of your organization, relevant public policy, the political context, and government process.

Open lines of communication with government and a reputation for credibility among elected officials, appointees, and staff are essential to effective advocacy.  To that end, we have carefully developed longstanding relationships with federal, state, and local agencies, authorities, and community corporations.

And there’s no substitute for hands-on experience.  Our professionals have served in government, represented public entities, advocated before legislators and regulators and successfully concluded a wide variety of transactions with government entities.

Let us leverage our knowledge, experience, and credibility to stake a better position for you by helping you align your interests with the public interest.  Our professionals quickly master the substance of your issue, assess the policy interests at stake, develop a persuasive rationale to advance your position, and get your point across to key policy makers.
