Federal Lobbying

Our respected and established presence means that our clients benefit from our insights into the dynamic movements of the legislative and executive branches. We deliver results in policy-making and regulatory decisions from sweeping to arcane.

Our Federal Work

Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies defines how an effective bipartisan Washington public affairs and lobbying firm should operate. We are not the oldest nor the largest; rather, we are known for being lean, entrepreneurial, and supremely effective. Sophistication meets moxie to create a winning government relations strategy for our clients.

Rotunda

Public Strategies adds significant and ongoing value to corporations, nonprofits, trade associations, and individuals – dealing with a vast array of federal issues. We know how to enter the field of action at every level, whether that means awareness-building among decision-makers, educating key officials on the broad challenges facing a particular industry, or drafting a compelling narrative to address a potential regulatory change.

Sometimes what needs to be done is changing a few words that can change the world. No matter what the goal, we win for our clients by executing on the fundamentals:

  • Substantive analysis of relevant public policies
  • Street-savvy assessment of the political landscape
  • Technical mastery of government processes and protocols
  • Persuasive messaging for target audiences
  • Access to key stakeholders and decision makers

Legislative Branch

Our professionals understand the inner workings of Congress's formal and informal power structures. They have collectively spent decades on Capitol Hill, as senior staff to Members of Congress, on congressional committees, and as chief in-house lobbyists for leading corporations, nonprofits, and trade associations. Whether working for passage, defeat, or amendment, we provide clear legislative counsel at every stage. We draft and finalize language, build congressional and grassroots support, and advocate with respect to executive action and regulatory enforcement.

Executive Branch

We have earned and re-earn a rare credibility on the Hill and among all the agencies. Senior members of our team have held high-level positions in multiple administrations, both Democratic and Republican, so we are intimately familiar with agency functionality, rulemaking processes, regulatory priorities, and the interplay among federal agencies. Having built broad and bipartisan networks, we are able to effectively promote client interests among both administration officials and executive agencies.
