McGuireWoods Consulting’s North Carolina government affairs team possesses the depth and reach to cover every base and meet every need – from the General Assembly to the state agencies, boards, and commissions that manage the daily work of government. Our bipartisan team brings together decades of private and public sector experience across industries, including education, healthcare, information technology, private equity, and procurement.
Representing Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and trade associations, we offer clients a complete suite of advocacy services at the local and state levels, including regulatory compliance, legislative and executive branch lobbying, and strategic communications.
North Carolina, ranked among the leading states for businesses, owes part of its success to legislative policies championed by our team. We know how to best guide companies and non-profit organizations in navigating the growth opportunities and challenges in the Tar Heel State.
Our team comprises former government officials from diverse sectors, ranging from agency and legislative staff to cabinet secretaries and elected officials. Notably, we boast a former Rules Committee and Redistricting general counsel, former gubernatorial chiefs of staff, and a former Medicaid director. This experience equips us with the ability to offer unparalleled insights into intricate and complex subject matters. Furthermore, our team members have served as party and caucus operatives, fostering strong connections with the House and Senate Republican and Democratic Caucus, as well as the Legislative Black Caucus. With our collective expertise covering every facet of state government, we provide clients with comprehensive representation, addressing even the most niche issues.
Committed to working alongside organizations in our community through McGuireWoods Consulting’s pro bono program, our team has affected positive change on issues such as veterans services, human trafficking, and mental health and addiction assistance.
