McGuireWoods Consulting

About McGuireWoods Consulting

McGuireWoods Consulting is a leader in developing innovative and strategic ways to serve our clients. Founded in 1998 as a full-service public affairs firm, our consultants provide federal, state and local government relations, national/multistate strategies, infrastructure and economic development, strategic communications and grassroots issue management services. We work in close partnership with our clients, providing seamless and savvy strategies to achieve public affairs objectives and increase federal- and state-level influence.

Unlike many public affairs firms with Washington offices, we have extensive state-level and national practice teams that complement our strong federal group and our professionals work together across all levels of government to optimize results for our clients. We have a broad and diverse array of relationships and contacts with key government officials and agencies, influential former officeholders and staffers, and organizations that impact both public policy and the regulatory process.

While we specialize in helping clients craft workable policy proposals, solve major public policy challenges and advocating our clients’ positions on governmental issues, we bring distinct value through multifaceted message development and issue advocacy strategies that help convert the proposals into law. Our team includes registered state or federal lobbyists and consultants with media relations experience and/or expertise in grassroots mobilization, issue campaigns, and coalition building.

McGuireWoods Consulting also possesses the ability to tap the vast substantive knowledge of our McGuireWoods’ attorneys. This makes for a potent combination that few firms can match. With the law firm, McGuireWoods Consulting uses client-focused teams to serve public, private, government, and nonprofit clients. We pride ourselves on partnering with clients by listening to their needs, understanding their businesses, and utilizing this knowledge base to provide efficient service.

No matter the issue, we will understand the policy debate, the political context, and the process in which matters of great importance to our clients will be decided.
