About us


We represent corporations of all sizes, non-profit institutions, national trade associations and high-profile individuals, and we have experience with many sectors, including health, transportation, communications, education, construction, energy, real estate, entertainment, financial services, insurance, and hospitality. Sophisticated clients, from Fortune 500 companies to ambitious start-ups, trust us to promote and protect their interests in the public sphere.

Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies is rare among lobbying firms for its reach and versatility. We have legislative, administrative, and agency experience; credibility inside the Beltway and far beyond; and truly bipartisan credentials. As such, we are capable of tackling government issues at every level and from any direction.

Federal, State & Local Presence

Based in Washington D.C., Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies understands how politics and policy are conducted in the nation’s capital. And we are one of the few lobbying groups with a mature federal presence that offers comparable knowledge and reputation at the state and local level. Our veteran lobbyists have been working in state capitols and major cities throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic for decades, and we maintain strong government relationships in all 50 states.

Government & Business Experience

Our team members know how government works because they have served—as elected officials, high-level appointees in Republican and Democratic administrations, senior staff to members of Congress and congressional committees, and advisors on presidential and gubernatorial campaigns and transition teams. Equally important, many have held top in-house government affairs positions with major corporations and associations.

National Platform

Public Strategies is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cozen O’Connor, a national Am Law-ranked full-service law firm with 25 offices across the country. Public Strategies clients have direct access to Cozen O’Connor’s nearly 650 attorneys with diverse practices in regulation, corporate law, and litigation. This partnership allows us to “scale up” on short notice and offer seamless legal, lobbying, and public relations counsel, while reinforcing our shared institutional culture of practicality, candor, ethics and hustle.

Boutique Service

The extent of our service offerings is notable, particularly given our firm’s boutique size and style. We are committed to this service model, which prioritizes personal relationships, tailored solutions, and frequent communication, because that is what clients value most. We don’t recruit armies of junior associates to build leverage. At Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, the lobbyist you hire is the lobbyist you get.
