Given the firm’s extensive work in the political and public policy arena, NGPA will draw upon its extensive experience to develop, oversee and manage coalition efforts as a strategic element of a campaign plan.
Enterprise risking litigation, a hyperactive regulatory environment, congressional oversight, and a proliferation of bloggers and social media jockeys who feed the mainstream media; in today’s media environment, businesses and any high-profile individuals are constantly at risk for a communications crisis.
