Washington, D.C., can at times be an overwhelming bureaucracy. Decisions often seem driven by politics rather than sound policy. McGuireWoods Consulting specializes in making Washington work for the businesses and institutions we represent. Our federal team is adept at stepping in when legislation or other federal policy could harm client interests, or to drive policy modifications when clients require the change to operate effectively. We draw on our broad experience to shape outcomes on the issues that matter most for our clients. Our bipartisan experience on Capitol Hill and in the executive branch provides us with the expertise and contacts needed to achieve positive results on both sides of the aisle and at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue. The Washington office is also home to several members of our National Multistate Strategies team who work on client matters in all 50 states, our International Government Relations team who assist clients with international issues, and members of our Advocacy team who focus on public relations strategies, grassroots mobilization, and coalition building.
