Clients

Our clients are the lifeblood of our organization.   We strive to provide analysis of the highest quality with complete objectivity.  It has always been our view that information is neither liberal nor conservative.  As a result, we have been privileged to work with leaders in both major parties on hundreds of occasions.  This approach has also allowed us to meet the needs of plaintiffs and defendants, regulators and those they regulate, communities seeking corporate employers and firms seeking to select new sites for facilities, environmental groups and those seeking to expand or operate in a responsible manner.

Our advice is often sought by presidents, members of congress, judges, regulators, and other officials throughout the US and in numerous foreign countries.  We have worked with ten cabinet departments (US Departments of State, Defense, Agriculture, Labor, Commerce, the Interior, Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Treasury, Energy, and Transportation) as well as the US Federal Reserve System.

Our roster of private clients includes:

  • the nine largest companies in the US,
  • eight of the ten largest law firms in the country,
  • three of the four largest foundations in the US,
  • the six largest energy companies doing business in the US,
  • the twelve largest technology firms in the US,
  • the five largest domestic financial institutions,
  • more than half of the Fortune 100, and
  • more than two-thirds of the Global Top 25.

We have also engaged in assignments for many smaller firms, local governments, trade associations, and economic development organizations.  We value every client and work diligently to meet their unique needs.
