Lobbying and Public Affairs

Troutman Sanders Strategies (“TSS”), founded in 2002 by Troutman Sanders LLP, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the law firm specializing in building partnerships between businesses and government at the federal, state and local levels. TSS has grown from a single office operation into a comprehensive, national issue management firm. TSS was created in response to the recognition of the growing complexities in the interface between business and government. Clients of Troutman Sanders LLP challenged the firm to assist in business-related issues, tax, governmental rule-making and appropriations-related issues. As the demands grew, the firm formed a dedicated team of specialists who could concentrate exclusively on government matters.

TSS initially emerged as a consulting group focused on state and federal issues relating to regional operations. As client demands increased and the reputation of the group expanded, TSS became a stand-alone business dedicated to a growing list of clients who sought this unique specialty service. Today, with offices in Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C., TSS has a national reputation for honesty, integrity and dedication to clients’ needs and services.

Each member of TSS has substantial experience in the legislative and regulatory process and has a broad array of bipartisan relationships at the state and local level. Members of TSS are in constant contact with key policymakers on issues that impact its many clients. As public policy experts, consultants and lobbyists, TSS advances its clients’ interests by closely tailoring its strategies and actions in response to the ever-changing political landscape.

TSS also has a strong commitment to its clients, working with and not just for them. With over 150 years of cumulative experience on behalf of its clients, TSS works to identify legislative and regulatory barriers to help craft plans to generate solutions and positive results. The diverse backgrounds and bipartisan approach of TSS provides the firm with numerous avenues to best serve the needs of its diverse client base.
