Connecticut Government Relations

Connecticut Government Relations Group  

In the world of politics and government, experience is key, but being there is everything. Our team of dedicated lobbyists is everywhere and anywhere that state government is in action. From press conferences and workgroups to committee meetings and legislative sessions, our clients are covered day in and day out.

CTGRG is comprised of highly skilled professionals who:

  1. Comprehend complex issues;
  2. Excel at strategic thinking; and,
  3. Achieve results ably and efficiently.

We are proud and privileged to take on the big and tough issues on behalf of our clients.  We are equally proud to offer continuity and consistency in representation that fosters an institutional knowledge beyond parallel allowing our team to quickly identify and act upon political and legislative developments of direct impact to our clients.

CTGRG lobbyists are substance-based advocates with deep relationships developed over decades of working in the Capitol complex. Our long history in Connecticut provides clients with unique insight into what drives state policy and our ability to digest, and then strategically communicate the goals and objectives of client interests to legislators, policymakers, and other allies, is what yields success. Our longevity in representing various sectors puts us front and center in some of the most highly charged debates where we negotiate the best possible outcomes for our clients.

Our services encompass all aspects of administrative and legislative lobbying, issue and crisis management, press and public relations, and grassroots organizing. Time after time, the team at CT Government Relations Group of Robinson+Cole has helped clients achieve their objectives, whether reflective of passage, defeat, or modification of legislation or regulations; financial assistance for development projects; and/or procurement of products and services. We successfully lobby on a variety of public policy issues including insurance, incentives for economic development, tax, labor, health care, energy regulation and infrastructure siting, environmental permitting, banking, finance, transportation, and gaming.

Clients, big and small, receive the same level of service and access to the timeliest and most critical information so they can advance their objectives or defend themselves accordingly. CTGRG’s successful lobbying practice is built on good-faith interactions with clients and policymakers and time-tested and proven work ethic.
