In the field of government affairs knowing the players and having relationships with them is crucial.  As your advocates we bring an extensive network of contacts and decades of work with elected officials, key staff, the executive branch and with key allies. Our firm also carefully selects our clients and does not take on new ones that have goals that would conflict with or would harm our existing clients. This approach ensures we act in support of our clients in an ethical manner and maintains positive reputations for both them and FocusPoint.
