political experience of The Leonard Group and its Independent Associates
is well in excess of One Hundred Years. We work the Congress, Federal
Agencies and the White House, every day. In addition, we service all the
50 State Legislatures. This is a time when there is criticism of the
business community as “special interests” and attempts to restrict the
voices of the business community by many Members of Congress. This is a
time when Managers need to have their views known on Capitol Hill and
because of our extensive experience, our lobbyists have the skills needed
to ensure that those voices are heard.
will affect your business is being decided in the White House, Federal
Agencies and Congress at this very moment. Unless you can reach the
decision-makers in these jurisdictions and effectively explain your
position, your business interests will not be considered.
The mission therefore is a simple, straightforward one.
Retain us and we will see to it that your views are
made known to the people who will make the decisions so you will
have the opportunity to make your case to them.
know that on most issues there usually is a way to seek common
ground and we know how to gather the intelligence needed to
reach such a result. In short, we are result-oriented and pragmatic
politicians. Sometimes accommodation is not possible and an all-out
legislative battle ensues. Our lobbyists have had the experience of
engaging in such legislative battles and winning.
The Leonard Group
and our Independent Associates have served in past Administrations and
on Congressional staffs. We use that experience to forge the long-term
contacts that allow us to reach the critical decision-makers at either
end of Pennsylvania Avenue. We learn about Bills and Amendments that
affect our client’s interests before they are introduced. We take the
mystery out of how Washington works and because we know how the system
works, we are a powerful voice in this highly-charged and ever-changing
Washington is far
more about intelligence than about information. Lots of people peddle
information, most of which comes from the news media and collective wisdom.
They know the “what”. But few are able to get behind the scenes to the far
more important “why”.
Our team of lobbyists
know the “what” and the “why” -- and that’s the reason we have been so
successful. We have had some truly remarkable successes on behalf of our
clients and we are eager to share them with you on a confidential basis.
Our mission is single focused: give us the opportunity to tell you how we
can help you.
