When it comes to lobbying the federal government, organizations have two options: hiring an individual lobbyist or hiring a lobbying firm. While both options have their advantages, there are several reasons why hiring a professional lobbying firm like Samuel Associates can be a better choice.

1. Access to a team of professional experts

We employ experienced professionals with various skills, expertise and backgrounds. This includes former politicians, senior government officials and ambassadors, high-ranking military and national security officers, industry executives, as well as top policy experts and researchers, and communications specialists, among others. By working with our team, clients can tap into a broader range of knowledge and experience, leading to more effective advocacy and achieving specific policy outcomes or business objectives.

2. A broader network of contacts

A well-established lobbying firm like Samuel Associates has a broader network of contacts than an individual lobbyist would possess. This includes contacts in government, business, and the media, among other areas. By leveraging these contacts, our firm can help organizations build relationships, gain support for their policy objectives or advance their pursuit of government procurement opportunities.

3. More resources

More corporate resources mean more significant and sustained campaign efforts to help clients advance and achieve their specific aims than an individual lobbyist. At Samuel Associates, this can include market research specialists and capabilities, administrative support, access to our Samuel Client Portal technology, and professional staff to follow-up meetings, for example. Our resources can help organizations develop better and more compelling arguments, reach a broader audience, and track policy developments or government procurement opportunities more effectively.

4. Greater accountability

Lobbying firms such as Samuel Associates are more accountable than individual lobbyists. As a professional services firm, we are subject to greater scrutiny and oversight and are required to report on our activities and expenditures. This provides reassurance to clients with greater transparency and assurance that their advocacy efforts and government relations are conducted ethically and responsibly.

5. Client flexibility

Samuel Associates offers greater client flexibility than an individual lobbyist. For example, if an issue requires expertise in a particular area, we can bring in an associate specialist or subject matter expert to work on complex topics, troubleshoot issues or provide a new perspective to clients. Additionally, if a client’s advocacy needs change over time, we can adjust our approach to meet those changing needs.

The bottom line: Our mission is to help our clients achieve more effective advocacy and greater success in influencing government policies and regulations or shaping specific government procurement opportunities.
