Navigating State and Federal Governments

Perhaps never before has the success or failure of any business been impacted more by government policies and regulations. Navigating the bureaucracy at any level of government can be a daunting task, but ERG has helped dozens of corporations find success.

You need on-the-ground professionals who can accurately and quickly analyze developments, and provide thorough and accurate information. ERG’s clients get real-time, unvarnished updates on matters impacting their business. The political insight we offer our client-partners helps them make sound judgments on everything from business decisions to future strategies.

Our years of experience, understanding and relationships ensure that your message is heard by the right people – at the right time. ERG has enjoyed tremendous success supplementing businesses’ needs and messages with its public affairs, public relations and media relations skills.

Who you know…
Government relations success comes from supporting an idea with facts, and delivering that idea to key people who will advance and support it. This is a complicated process which requires established relationships with a host of people and organizations. ERG takes great pride in the relationships we have developed in government through our professionalism and integrity. The resulting trust gives us access to key public officials with oversight of industries and policies. Our relationships extend far beyond government, helping us align our clients with a range of people from policy makers to industry leaders in support of your company goals.

What you know…
ERG understands that it is also what you know. Our years of institutional knowledge and work within state government have taught us the processes and pressure points that helped us anticipate policy developments, craft and deliver your message, and move more than 80 bills into law. Our partners and associates have experience and expertise public policy areas, including business, agriculture, appropriations, energy, environment, health care, non-profits and transportation.

Where you go…
From working with local governments in rural Pennsylvania to unraveling the confusing corridors of Washington DC, ERG understands the politics and knows the processes. We use the experience of decades to plan strategies for clients that create the results they need, adapted to the specific government officials or agencies involved.

We have extensive relationships with key contacts in local government, in other states, on Capitol Hill, and in federal agencies. And we pride ourselves in our coverage of Washington activities from Congressional hearings, committees, political and media events, and federal regulatory actions.
