about us

our purpose
We are an international consultancy firm working to solve political, policy, investment, and resource challenges facing todays global businesses, governments, and organizations.
our history

Our firm’s beginnings are rooted in the political and economic development of countries transitioning to democratic government and open markets. We worked to support the integration of countries into international and multinational security and economic institutions and helped deepen their bilateral working relationships with the United States, and Europe. With the growth of our public sector offering, our private sector portfolio expanded as we offered corporations strategies to support their cross-border investment, market entry, business development, and trade facilitation agendas.

Over the years we have expanded in Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and in select Asian, African, and Middle Eastern markets. With respect to Europe, in 2018, we decided to join forces with our advisor for the EU, Mathilde Defarges, and her long-time business partner Etienne Bodard, to serve clients in France and the European Union.

Throughout, we continue to provide the highest quality strategic planning, public affairs, and government relation services to our client in the United States, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and in emerging markets around the world.
