Foley’s Public Policy and Government Relations group provides services covering the full spectrum of public policy, combining comprehensive counsel with proficiency in government relations, political law, strategic positioning, and communications with the practice of law, when needed. Protecting the needs and interests of our clients in the public arena is demanding and requires focused discipline and strategic counsel. Our team brings diverse experience and deep knowledge as well as responsive and creative business solutions. We can represent clients federally, in discrete states, or coordinate nationwide campaigns to achieve clients’ goals simultaneously on federal, state, and local levels.
We are known for devising and advocating practical and politically viable solutions to complex issues — often in a highly charged political environment. On certain matters, our political strategy calls for a limited and carefully calculated approach; on other matters, we establish broad-based coalitions or mobilize grassroots campaigns. With an in-depth understanding of the statutory and regulatory framework in which issues arise, coupled with strong ties with the White House, executive agencies, Congress, and state decision-makers and opinion leaders, we are positioned as the ideal vanguard for clients’ government relations initiatives. Whether clients need legislation passed or stopped, administrative rules written or changed, trade issues tracked, or funding secured by a government contract, our front-line position can help clients achieve their goals.
The federal Public Policy team is made up of former Members of Congress (from both parties), former House and Senate Chiefs of Staff, and former Administration staffers. We cover the full spectrum of public policy and have a proven track record of helping clients achieve their public policy and political priorities, with extensive experience advocating on behalf of clients involved in various aspects of government.
We invest heavily in building connections both legislatively and politically and have developed many meaningful relationships throughout the House, Senate, and Administration over our many years of experience working in and with the federal government and private sector. Our combined years of government experience enable us to deliver results by working with congressional Republican and Democratic leadership and with key caucuses and committees.
