Success in our national economy often requires effective participation in public policy debates. Drawing from experience our partners have had as senior counsel to key House and Senate leaders, HWG offers clients knowledgeable strategy and committed implementation for advancing their positions before lawmakers. We can help to influence public policy, whether the goal is legislation, congressional oversight of agency decision-making, or simply educating policymakers on critical issues facing your company.

Our lawyers have counseled Members of Congress responsible for communications and technology policy from both national Parties, and therefore can tailor a bipartisan strategy to achieve your objectives. Our clients include today’s leading technology companies, so we appreciate the rapid pace in which the industry operates and the complex coalitions among lawmakers on a broad range of technology issues.

HWG’s deep understanding of telecommunications and technology policy, coupled with our past service as senior officials in the Executive branch and at the FCC enables us to be effective advocates for your interests, across the government. HWG offers practical, effective advice and advocacy. We understand how Congress operates—from developing and conducting hearings, constituent-driven oversight letters, to mark-ups and floor consideration of legislation – and who the issue leaders are in the technology field. We can use our understanding of Congress and the Executive branch to ensure that your company’s interests are reflected in public policy.



At HWG, we’re always looking for smart, talented people to add to our team.
