Introducing Peak Policy

Introducing Peak Policy

We are please to announce the launch of Peak Policy, a government affairs and policy consulting company based in Portland, Ore., specializing in the areas of state and local legislative, tax and regulatory matters. Peak Policy is a boutique lobbying firm providing specialized advocacy solutions for businesses, nonprofits, and other lobbyists.

Jeff Newgard, principal, has been shaping technical tax, healthcare and business policy as a lobbyist for nearly a decade. He formed the company after spending time in a congressional office and later as a contract lobbyist. Throughout his career in Oregon politics, Jeff realized there was an absence of specialty lobbying on critical issues facing the state legislature and decided to focus his time on improving the policy discourse in targeted areas.

In politics, information is the key to success. The mission of Peak Policy is to elevate policy discussions and improve the regulatory landscape for our clients, their industries and, ultimately, our community. We are engaged in most contemporary policy areas, including tax and business regulation, environmental, health care and the innovation economy.

Peak Policy offers a wide range of services for our clients. This includes traditional lobbying services but also specialized consulting solutions for players in the political process designed to enhance the conventional wisdom around contemporary policy debates. In the weeks and months ahead, we will be being using this blog as a venue to share insights on issues in the areas of tax policy, the economy and the context behind contemporary policy debates. We hope you will follow us as we begin this exciting journey.
