Long regarded as the industry leader in State and Local Government Affairs, Stateside Associates helps its clients recognize more success from their programs by contributing experience, nationwide relationships and well-honed skills as issue managers.
Our 52-person staff includes 18 former state legislature staff members, 10 attorneys and 11 issue managers.
From government affairs program design to execution, there are experienced Stateside professionals available to help. Whether the task is issue monitoring, retaining lobbyists, developing strategic plans, budgeting, working with Groups or integrating grasstops into your program, the experienced team at Stateside can assist.
On a daily basis, Stateside team members help clients untie the knots of state legislation and regulations – identifying problems and opportunities and developing sophisticated government affairs programs that are both effective and budget-conscious. One key to success is Stateside’s commitment to treat all clients as “clients of the firm.” That enables clients to access the full array of partner, manager and staff resources seamlessly.
