is one of Washington’s premier lobbying firms, providing a full array of government relations consulting services to our non-profit, for-profit and municipal clients. While our capabilities in Washington are broad, we specialize in pursuing and securing federal funding for universities, colleges, hospitals, state and local governments, small businesses, corporations and non-profit organizations through the annual spending bills that fund the agencies of the federal government, as well as through federal agency grant processes.
Founded in January 2001, The National Group brought together a bi-partisan group of government relations professionals with extensive experience, exceptional contacts and an unsurpassed depth and breadth of understanding of how things get done in Washington.
Our clients will attest to the fact that our experience and accomplishments on behalf of our clients are unrivaled. In fact, over the past 12 years, The National Group has established itself as one of the most effective and successful lobbying firms in Washington. In its first year in existence, The National Group was recognized as a 'lobbying firm to watch' by, Influence On-Line, an important Washington-based lobbying industry journal. Since then, the firm's work has been highlighted in Congressional Quarterly, Roll Call, The Hill and various other respected industry publications and major newspapers.
The National Group seeks to provide clients with the most effective lobbying representation available in Washington by offering the services of an extraordinarily capable group of seasoned lobbying professionals. The National Group is committed to providing the highest quality services and places a premium on developing long-term relationships with its clients. The National Group was founded on the principle that the best client service is provided by a medium-sized firm where the partners manage the effort every step of the way and is able to give each client 100% of the time and attention they demand and deserve.
When a client hires The National Group, it is hiring the firm as a whole – the considerable collective experience and expertise of the various partners and 'of-counsel' individuals associated with the firm. All of this expertise is applied to each client's projects at the direction of the team leader.
We know how important it is to stay in constant touch with our clients, especially at the most critical points of the process. This ensures that there are no surprises and that no necessary tasks fall through the cracks. That is why our team has regular calls with every one of our clients and is available for consulting 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays. In addition, our team will make regular progress reports to the client in whatever form and at whatever time intervals the client desires.
Our team tends to all of the details, large and small. This includes scheduling all meetings, drafting and editing all project documents and correspondence, providing briefing materials and talking points, and staying in constant communication with Members of Congress and their staff throughout the process to keep our client’s projects on the radar screen and high on the Member’s list of priorities.
The National Group strictly adheres to all federal and Congressional ethics rules regulations and codes of conduct in pursuit of our clients’ goals, at all times. We are registered with the United States Senate and House of Representatives pursuant to applicable federal lobbying laws and regulations and keep our clients informed of their responsibilities under the same.
