“Lighthouse was a key partner in helping our North American natural gas pipeline go from the incubation stage to a commercial reality. We came to the firm needing expert advice on how to manage outreach efforts with Congress, the FERC and the various stakeholder interests affected by a major new capital project. Working with Lighthouse, we quickly deployed a strategy, came to know the major players and built broad support for the project, which received all its approvals and went into service in record time.”
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, Targeted Communications. The firm takes pride in its long-term energy and environment expertise.
Our service areas include political risk and profile management, with a focus on advocacy and lobbying campaigns. 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 (or renewed!) 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
Throughout our history, 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.
By way of example, we have worked with communications power house Purple Strategies, prominent energy and environment specialist & commentator Richard Goodstein, and tax policy experts Urban, Swirski & Associates (USA).
This constellation of seasoned professionals has allowed us to provide clients with a seamless approach for managing both brand and advocacy objectives in today’s 24/7/365 political climate.
