Who We Are
About Peak Policy
Peak Policy is a nonpartisan government affairs and policy consulting firm based in Portland, Ore., specializing in the areas of state and local legislative, tax and regulatory matters. We take great pride in the reputation we have established as a trusted and reliable source of policy context for our clients and their issue areas.
When our services are integrated into a client’s lobbying operation—either as a primary or secondary lobbyist—there is an immediate impact on their success. This is because our clients understand the most effective lobbying strategies rely on having the best teams advancing and defending their interests.
The state legislative and regulatory environment is rapidly changing. The days of lawmakers convening and then sitting in neutral until the next session convenes are long gone. Every day, lawmakers and regulatory bodies are making decisions that directly influence the lives and livelihoods of our communities.
Elected and public officials are now more accessible than they have ever been with the advent of the 24-hour news cycle, the Internet and social media. This has the potential to improve legislative discourse or deteriorate institutional trust. Now, more than ever, policymakers need to understand the fully policy context of their decisions.
Our commitment in the political process is to leverage our intimate understanding of contemporary policy issues with our expertise in navigating the political process to prevail in a challenging political environment.
Our Approach to Lobbying
The foundation of a successful lobbying strategy is built on an understanding of the client’s unique and specific needs. We marshal policy initiatives for our clients from their conception to implementation and guide our clients in developing comprehensive strategies tailored specifically to accomplish their public policy priorities.
We deploy a campaign-style approach to our advocacy that begins with assessing threats and opportunities to build strong coalitions. We work with our clients to develop meaningful messages conveying the real-world consequences of policy actions. Like a campaign, our approach is predicated on repetitive interactions. We meet and regularly follow up with decision makers to ensure our client positions are integrated into any policy.
