The Handelsblatt Publishing House owes Blue Star Strategies a great deal of gratitude. Thanks to their high level of professionalism, outstanding dedication, far-reaching connections and deep understanding of how Washington, D.C., works, Handelsblatt managed a successful press conference in the capital. This was only possible because of the substantial assistance of Blue Star Strategies, which selected the appropriate venue and contacted the relevant decision makers and moderated our press conference. Because of our seamless, successful experience there I can wholeheartedly recommend Blue Star Strategies for anyone who wants to do business in Washington, D.C.

We have worked with the principals of Blue Star Strategies, LLC on a wide variety of political and development issues on various continents for numerous years. In all sincerity, they offer more first rate strategic vision, attention to a client's projects, issue resolution and meaningful relationship networking than any other governmental consultant we have used anywhere. Their energy and passion, combined with excellent and continuing governmental relationships in the countries they handle as well as with the US government at all levels has led to great results over and over again.

Experience, insight into the decision making processes "inside the Washington Beltway" and an ability to approach the most comprehensive government affairs and regulatory cases are rare qualifications of leaders of Blue Star Strategies, LLC. Close cooperation and advice in the very complicated case of NATO enlargement ratification and more recently, help on the successful strategy for the visa waiver process for my country are just two success stories. Efficient, sensitive, and a pleasure to work with.
