Federal Government Relations
Butzel Long Tighe Patton prides itself in providing the highest quality, success-oriented, government relations services to domestic and international clients at all levels of the Federal Government. Since our founding 17 years ago, we have helped individual companies, trade associations, universities, labor organizations, and municipal governments achieve their important strategic objectives in the Washington arena.
The BLTP team knows the Federal Government from the inside out. Our skilled professionals previously served in high level positions in both the legislative and executive branches of government, while also possessing strong backgrounds in business and industry. We know the law, the process, the politics, and the players. We have the understanding of legislative procedures, knowledge of executive branch policy development, and insight into how the institutions of government operate, coupled with strong personal relationships, to ensure our clients' success.
We have advocated successfully before Congress and the Administration to promote new initiatives for our clients, and oppose threatened action. We have persuaded Congress to pass legislation, and/or adopt report language helpful to our clients. We have protected - and advanced - clients interests during congressional hearings and investigations, and agency policy making.
Our government relations efforts are concentrated in the following policy and industry areas:
- National Defense and Homeland Security
- DOD Build-up on Guam
- Federal Procurement Policy
- Research and Development
- Science and Technology
- Health Care
- Transportation and Infrastructure
- Telecommunications, Wireless and Satellite Communications
- Information Technology
- Colleges and Universities
Owing in large part to our prior backgrounds in government and industry, at BLTP, we also maintain the highest standards of integrity and respect for lobbying and ethics rules. Our clients can trust that efforts on their behalf will be conducted with the upmost of discretion, and in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
We look forward to helping you overcome challenges, advance strategic interests, and seize business opportunities presented by the Federal Government.
