Advocacy & Strategic Communications


The Podesta Group is an unrivaled team of Democratic and Republican advocacy and strategic communications professionals based in Washington, DC.

DRIVEN - With rolled sleeves and a can-do approach, we have built a reputation of producing superior results for more than two decades. From policymaking to crisis communications, online advocacy to grassroots strategy, we understand how to chart a winning course in Washington and have the know-how to deliver. That’s why we are consistently ranked among the very best.

INSPIRED - Always clever, never ordinary, we consider each client and each issue a new challenge that demands a unique approach. Whether the goal is to make some noise and raise an organization’s visibility or to affect policy change, we employ inventive strategies that set us apart and help change outcomes.

SMART - Proven leaders in their areas of expertise, our bipartisan bench of legislative and communications strategists brings decades of collective experience in policy and politics to bear. Unlike so many conventional lobbying and public relations shops, our dynamic team cut its teeth where it counts: at the highest levels of government, on the campaign trail and in major newsrooms. With a keen understanding of the intersection between policy and publicity, we value sharp strategic counsel, effective message development, an integrated approach and the latest intelligence – all critically important in this ever-changing environment.

Our team has deep substantive experience – on a broad range of issues from government regulation and reform to financial services and energy and the environment, health care and international policy to defense and technology, media relations and brand development, and everything in between. We cover the waterfront – and have never met a task too tough to tackle.

That’s why, since 1987, we have been successfully helping everyone from small start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, multinational corporations to trade associations and nonprofits, and local municipalities to foreign governments realize their public affairs goals.

“You are only as good as what you did last month, so you need to keep delivering for your clients every day, every week. We have a group of people who can really make that happen.”

– Tony Podesta to THE HILL
