Advocacy

Since 1987, the Podesta Group has provided organizations with superior strategic counsel, combined with ingenuity that is unique in Washington. We have one goal for our clients: to deliver results. That dogged approach is why our hardworking government relations team is consistently named among the Beltway's very best. No matter the legislative issue, whether government reform and regulation, health care and defense, budget and appropriations, international and financial services, energy and agriculture, technology and telecommunications, business to government, education or transportation, we understand the politics and publicity that determine our clients' fate in Washington, and we have a track record to prove it.

Our clients range from small, cutting-edge companies to global corporations, sovereign nations to local municipalities, trade associations to non-profits, and our solutions and strategies for achieving all of their policy goals are innovative and smart. Bloomberg Businessweek calls the Podesta Group a "Beltway Blackbelt," we call ourselves an unmatched team of policy experts that brings decades of experience in all corners of the federal government, and on the campaign trail to bear. We work with Capitol Hill policymakers, recruit third-party allies, connect with the media and build coalitions to champion our clients' agendas - in short, we know how to get things done.
