State Affairs

HBW’s State and Local affairs team takes pride in our broad and deep relationships across multiple state and local governments, as well as our creativity and speed. Our firm is constantly taking the swift actions necessary to protect and promote client interests whether mobilizing stakeholder support, maintaining close relationships with key elected officials at all levels, commissioning polling and focus group testing, or working with our communications team to develop localized communications strategies.

Our State and Local affairs team combines unique access with extensive expertise to design and execute effective strategies on energy and environmental issues.

HBW’s State and Local affairs professionals share our firm’s heritage of more than a century’s worth of combined government and private sector experience in navigating the complexities of the energy and environmental state policy and regulatory arenas. We successfully employ that experience to steer you toward success at the state and local levels, often working in tandem with HBW’s communications, regulatory and federal affairs teams.

We carefully tailor work plans to meet the specific needs of clients, ranging from basic monitoring and intelligence gathering to direct lobbying and engagement to full-scale issues campaign management with comprehensive communications support. 

No state or local effort is too big or too small. We can build a plan to meet your needs, no matter the ask.
