“Lighthouse’s unique Government Affairs Assessment (GAA) tool helped transform US from a company still undergoing the stress of a merger to an organization with a “best-practices” approach to federal, state and local government affairs.”
Founded in 1996, our portfolio approach to supporting client requirements has grown to include: CEO, C-Suite and Board Advisory Services; Government Affairs Advocacy and Campaign Strategies; Profile Development with Policymakers; and, a full-service Communications Platform. The firm takes pride in its long-term energy, environment and related tax expertise.
Our service areas include political risk and profile management with a focus on advocacy and lobbying campaigns. We also offer strategic communications, through opinion research, digital platforms, media relations and grassroots operations. In addition, we provide CEO, C-Suite and Board advisory services program and business development support. Last but not least, we oversee profile development and management for companies seeking a new Washington presence.
Our strengths are managing advocacy campaigns in which business development and marketing strategies are enhanced—or threatened—by political or public policy drivers. We pride ourselves on being a “knowledge-based” firm that places a heavy emphasis on content, initiative, hustle, clear communications, and follow-through.
Briefly stated, our added value stems from three fundamentals:
- A dominant expertise in the politics of energy and the environment.
- A credo that who you know is the keyhole. What you know is the key.
- A powerful commitment to service and an incomparable work ethic.
Best People: Best Practices
Lighthouse has expanded its reach by growing alliance relationships with top-tier colleagues in Washington. We call this a Best People: Best Practices approach to meeting client needs.
In 2011 we launched our alliance with communications power house Purple Strategies. In 2012 we began a collaboration with prominent energy and environment expert Richard Goodstein. More recently we added the boutique tax firm Urban, Swirski & Associates (USA) to our family of alliance firms.
This constellation of seasoned professionals allows us to provide clients with a seamless approach for managing both brand and advocacy objectives in today’s 24/7/365 political climate.
