Business and non-profit leaders know that one avenue to organizational success is cultivating and maintaining relationships with government, legislative leadership, and key stakeholders. We provide the gateway to that success through our extensive connections in all facets of government and industry.

Fredrikson’s policy and advocacy professionals understand how governmental decisions impact our clients and will help them develop and navigate proactive and reactive strategies to address their needs. Our team’s solid relationships with key decision-makers and strong understanding of governmental and legislative processes are a critical part of the plan for success.


Providing quality guidance and advocacy requires knowing the political environment and key stakeholders, as well as understanding the interactions between government and our clients’ work. It also requires listening and responding to our client’s specific goals. With years of public service in federal, state and local government, our team provides access to key decisionmakers and stakeholders as well as an in-depth understanding of the legislative and political processes. We monitor, strategize, and advocate on behalf of clients, combining integrity with insight and knowledge to effectively navigate our relationships inside and outside of state government.

Policymakers trust our expertise when it comes to legislative and administrative ideas and solutions. Our combined experience provides clients with a broad understanding of the inner workings of the Governor’s office, the legislature and state agencies. We have a proven track record of collaboration with key stakeholders whose goals intersect with those of our clients.

Our Approach

Through gaining a thorough understanding of each client’s unique needs and objectives, we are able to apply our team’s extensive knowledge of the legislative climate and political dynamics to produce positive outcomes. Our government relations approach involves strategic and sequential steps that include state agency and legislative activity targeted at achieving the desired results.

Our team’s commitment to our clients is year-round. The transition between legislative sessions is a time for opportunity; laying the groundwork for new legislation while the legislature is at rest is a vital part of a successful government relations strategy. The summer and fall months are used to relay information, work with agency staff, visit legislators in their districts and organize meetings between our clients and key legislators in order to prepare for the upcoming session.

Practical Takeaway

A well-developed and responsive government relations strategy plays a key role in effective organizations. To be successful, organizations should look for opportunities to expand their governmental knowledge and involvement.
