We believe our team has three distinct strengths that set us apart from other lobbying firms. First, we represent all of our clients and their individual executive and legislative branch needs as a team in order to maximize our collective experiences, skills, relationships, and contacts to bear on any issue.
As a team, we have over 90 years of experience working in and with the Executive Branch, Legislative Branch, and regulatory agencies of the Florida Government; we know the key decision-makers and we know the process. Together, we have the experience and the relationships to provide our clients with superior representation before the Legislature, the Cabinet, and all state agencies.
Second, all of our team members have a solid reputation as advocates built on hard work, integrity, honesty and the ability to build consensus even on difficult issues. Finally, our team members strive to learn as much as they can about our clients’ business and issues; as well as, maintain in close contact with the client throughout the term of our representation. A commitment to quality in all that we do is what makes One Eighty Consulting different from our competitors.
As mentioned, we use a “team approach” in our advocacy efforts. Apart from the four member lobbying team identified above, we have five staff members dedicated to serving the legislative and executive branch needs of our clients. These individuals are experienced in conducting research, legislative bill tracking, including agency budget issues, and coordinating fundraisers, seminars and events.
