What sets Powers, Griffin & Hill apart are the unique relationships and experiences that lead to results. The lobbying team is comprised of professionals with experience as governmental leaders and advocates on both the local and state level. The lobby team has deep connections with key legislators, with some team members working at the Capitol or in the Administration. These relationships with key public officials are long-standing – based on friendships and trust earned over many years.
The firm also functions as a full team - rather than as lobbyists with independent relationships - to leverage collective strengths and insights. This approach has earned the firm a reputation of being efficient and effective, regardless of client or topic.
