Since McGuireWoods Consulting was founded in Richmond in January 1998, the Virginia government relations team has firmly established itself as a driving force in the halls of the General Assembly and amongst key decision-makers throughout the Commonwealth. Our team’s history runs deep, and we are privileged to have our firm’s co-founder and our current chairman as pillars of our team since McGuireWoods Consulting opened its doors in the River City.

We offer clients unparalleled experience on both sides of the aisle, and we pride ourselves on delivering results across industries such as healthcare, data centers, gaming, artificial intelligence, and education. We hold close relationships with the Republican and Democratic Caucuses and the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, the governor’s office, the lieutenant governor’s office, the attorney general’s office, and the boards and departments that serve them.

Our team boasts three former Virginia Secretaries of Education, former Congressional and Virginia House of Delegates chiefs of staff, a former assistant attorney general, a former senior policy director for the governor’s office, and a former co-finance chairman of the governor’s inaugural committee.

Whether we are demystifying the legislative processes or building and implementing a major policy initiative from the ground up, our team has the knowledge, creativity, and connections to navigate any political or government-based challenge.

Our firm’s national advocacy team has a strong presence in Virginia, offering clients across the country unparalleled digital media and marketing, coalition building and mobilization, and communications and public relations services that no other lobbying firm can provide.
