Thoughtful strategies that deliver meaningful results.

Forbes Tate Partners is a full-service public affairs consultancy specializing in government relations, strategic communications, grassroots advocacy, corporate growth and change, and fundraising and development.

Our bipartisan, integrated approach offers access to our experienced team, expertise across industries, and solutions to tackle every policy battle. By combining lobbying with strategic communications, grassroots advocacy, and development, we create cost-effective, tailored solutions that best fit your needs, not simply our capabilities. From start-up to industry leader, our experienced team can tackle your most pressing challenges.

How can we help you?

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT RELATIONS

Influencing action to achieve results.

Whether you need to connect with influencers on Capitol Hill or across the federal government, having a bipartisan team that can advocate on your behalf with members of Congress, congressional staff, and the executive branch is essential to shaping the policies that matter. Our diverse practice areas include tax, healthcare, energy, financial services, technology and telecommunications, transportation, appropriations, natural resources, and trade.

Forbes Tate Partners’ Lobbying Practice has the network to ensure that there is not an office on Capitol Hill we cannot reach or an issue on which we cannot strategically advise our clients. We understand who is most important to the legislative and regulatory processes, how those individuals think, who they listen to, and what influences them.

No matter the issue, our goal for federal advocacy is simple – to win for our clients.

Navigating state governments to support client goals.

FTP understands that many policy and legislative battles happen outside of Washington, DC.  That’s why we expanded our government relations practice to the states, where our team can help you achieve your policy goals from Virginia to California.

The FTP team has vast experience outside the Beltway combining state government experience, campaign expertise and decades of involvement with key stakeholders throughout the country. We have worked not only with a number of state legislative bodies, but also with many of the country’s sitting governors and attorneys general.

This experience, combined with our grassroots advocacy, can help you gather intelligence on state level interests that impact your bottom line and successfully navigate challenges that inevitably arise inside our nation’s legislative and executive branches.

Navigate the states and build impactful state-level strategies across the country to achieve your outcome.

FUNDRAISING AND DEVELOPMENT

Finding the resources you need to succeed.

If you’re a nonprofit in the start-up phase, a large, well-established institution, or a political candidate at the state or federal level, having the resources you need to be successful is paramount.

Forbes Tate Partners’ Development and Fundraising Practice focuses on the creation and implementation of comprehensive development strategies for our clients. We can help you with major donor identification, cultivation, communications, program marketing, donor advisement, and board development, to highlight a few of our offerings.

By thoughtfully developing a strategy to engage the funding community, we bolster our clients’ fundraising performance to ensure they achieve best in class results.

Find the right message so you can find the right people and resources to accomplish your goals.

Engaging real people with real stories to make real impact.

When you need every voice to support your position, you need a team that can identify, engage, and convince public participation.

M&A AND CORPORATE GROWTH

Proactively shaping the regulatory environment around disruptive technologies and corporate change.

Whether you’re a start-up venturing into an unknown regulatory environment, clearing hurdles to support a friendly acquisition, or defending your company from a hostile takeover, controlling the narrative is essential to success. Forbes Tate Partners’ Mergers and Acquisitions Practice has worked closely with CEOs and CFOs on all sides of large-scale transactions who understand that deals aren’t just won and lost on Wall Street – they require a comprehensive strategy that incorporates leaders in Washington and in state capitals, customers, supply chains, and other vital stakeholders now more than ever.

Similarly, disruptive technologies and new business models bring inherent change and often face existential challenges dealing with a regulatory framework built by those not imagining the changes brought forward by America’s startup community.

Whether you’re a start-up or going through a big change for your business, we will work with you to shape opinions, news coverage, and the outlook on your business challenge in Washington and elsewhere by implementing smart strategies that strengthen your hand.

Shape the narrative and influence the process so you are in control.
