Public Affairs

Politics and public policy have a major impact on the environment in which our clients operate

The political landscape in Washington, DC undertakes a dramatic shift in 2009 with a new Presidential Administration that will be filled with new political appointments and new directives on major policy issues. It is also the start of another session of Congress (111th Session) that will focus on the economy, education, war in Iraq, energy independence, agriculture (food & drug), health care, tax, technology, trade, and the future of social security.

On these policy issues and many more, the U.S. Government is committed to helping businesses and our economy thrive.  Government certainly lent support during the Enron scandal on devising legislation protecting future pensions, Microsoft on anti-trust issues, and of course Wall Street with bailout legislation.  When the business community interacts properly and pro-actively with Government, the benefits can yield tremendous value.
