McGuireWoods Consulting’s South Carolina team provides clients with unparalleled government relations, strategic communications, and comprehensive solutions to their regulatory and legislative issues at the national, state, and local levels. We serve clients across industries, including private equity, K-12 and higher education, financial services, healthcare, real estate, energy, and insurance.
We hold close relationships with the South Carolina House and Senate Caucuses, executive branches, state agencies, and local governments and work closely with clients to resolve legislative and regulatory matters impacting their business operations. We shape the conversation and raise brand and issue awareness by weaving strategic communications into our legislative and regulatory advocacy plans. Non-profits and trade and business associations also turn to us for assistance with a full-suite of non-lobbying services, including managing programs, events, communications, and membership initiatives.
A key differentiator of the services we offer is our ability to represent clients across all 50 states, advising business leaders on a wide range of state, regional, and national policy issues. We also assist private equity investors and portfolio companies in understanding the implications of state-level policy decisions and market trends for their investment decisions.
