 We Are Communicators

At Gallant Policy Advisors, we develop strategies that help communicate our clients’ stories with their target audiences. We tell a vibrant story on behalf of our clients that becomes unforgettable and effective. Whether your organization or industry faces an ongoing challenge or a short-term crisis, we provide experience and guidance on legislative and regulatory issues.

Every step in building momentum and changing opinion to your side is crucial. Each encounter and every message must be worded correctly and delivered by the right person at the optimal time. An incorrect comment or statement can have a crippling impact on your advocacy. Lack of a well-planned, coordinated strategy for advocacy can set your objective back or cause it to fail. That is why we help you craft the right message, timing, and delivery for every conversation and written communication.

It’s not just about killing bills, it’s also about getting them passed. We advocate on your behalf for policy, legislation, projects, funding, and ballot measures.
