Smaller Lobbying Firms: Resources on Demand

Tapping a vast array of contract & networked resources

Tapping a vast array of contract & networked resources

Many times when discussing a potential client’s needs, the question comes up about “how we handle issues when they seem larger than the scope of our internal resources.” The answer is: we use our network of resources. After two decades of experience in Washington, D.C., Cansler Consulting has developed a vast array of political, legal, marketing and technical resources that are readily available to handle any issue. By not keeping full time resources on the clock, our clients are not paying for the expensive overhead of a huge staff.  This way client’s resources can be more efficiently and effectively targeted.For example,

  • if we need to develop a grassroots groundswell, we can utilize our marketing group to develop Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and social media to generate Internet chatter about the topic.
  • if we need attorneys to review documentation, we call on our network of experienced legal minds to review and assist.

If you need catering, you don’t keep a full time chef on your payroll.

You bring in the caterer on an as-needed basis and pay for only what you need, not the other 364 days of the year. This same principle applies to additional lobbying resources. Why pay for full time legislative advocates and attorneys when you may only need them occasionally?

Cansler Consulting is leading the trend that The Hill reported in July 2012 “where companies and organizations are hiring ’boutique’ lobbyists to enable them to make the most of their government relations budgets in an economy that grows tighter and tighter every day.”

This cost-effective mindset is part of why Cansler Consulting can save you money while obtaining the level of government relations you need.

Cansler Consulting is a certified lobbying practice that is experienced in the multi-faceted and inter-related industries of Agriculture, Food and Drug Safety, Immigration, Transportation & Infrastructure, International Trade and Energy. Through our congressional and regulatory relationships established for over two decades we can help you influence the policy makers on Capitol Hill and navigate the federal budgeting process. You can contact us at or at (202) 220-3150.
