Political Risk Analysis

Whether your company is on Wall Street, Main Street, or on the other side of the Atlantic, decisions made in Washington, DC can impact just about every sector of the U.S. or global marketplace.

While there is a great deal of information available in the public domain, there is no substitute for custom reporting on legal, public policy, and political developments. What you see on television or read about in the Internet or newspapers, is usually a very small sliver of the whole story.

Our team is comprised of seasoned professionals who have worked in federal as well as state government. We have testified before Congressional Committees as well as the United Nations. We have also done a great deal of international travel, worked with clients in Europe and Latin America, and have been reviewed decision-making processes in governmental systems throughout the world. These experiences are useful in preparing our reports and delivering a more complete product for you.

One of the primary goals of an effective PI project is planning for the future. PI reporting focuses on factual review and analyses by individuals who have actually been on the front-line of law-making, rule-making, or political processes. Our reports go beyond the headlines and are devoid of the political intrigue that  make up the majority public discourse of legal and public policy matters.

PI services are not lobbying, or necessarily efforts undertaken in anticipation of lobbying, that require public reporting under the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 (LDA) or the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007 (HLOGA). This is an important distinction as PI services are not done to influence the federal government and, as such, are informational and do not require public reporting.

Our PI services include, but are not limited to:

  • Analysis of Congressional processes such as hearings or new laws
  • Analysis of Executive branch agency rule-making
  • Custom reports based on client research requirements
  • Foreign Affairs & National Security
  • Analyses of how law, public policy, and information impact your business
  • Political & Legal Risk Analysis
  • Congressional state delegation issue analysis
  • Executive branch agency decision-making processes
