from our team
We connect our clients real world perspectives on complicated issues with those drafting legislation or implementing policy. And that makes a difference. Below are some examples of our work.
A GOOD DEFENSE IS THE BEST OFFENSE
Sometimes the best win is the one you don’t hear about. For years, the Obama Administration has proposed significant tax increases on the oil and gas industry stifling job and economic growth. Working on behalf of its clients, The Nickles Group has successfully made the case against these cuts, every year, saving the industry millions.
DAVID VS. GOLIATH
The Nickles Group helped lead a broad coalition that fought unfair debit card swipe fees, ultimately winning favorable Congressional action. The issue, and the coalition, went from unknown to respected consumer advocate, thanks to the work of the Nickles’ team.
Many companies find themselves in Washington due to a crisis. They must immediately respond to a legislative threat, testify before a Congressional Committee or build support for a cause. With a task that seems overwhelming, finding a trusted partner goes a long way. The Nickles Group boosted a tech newcomer’s stature among its peers and helped them build relationships on Capitol Hill, so when the legislative fight came, they were ready.
AROUND THE WORLD
When international clients need help, they increasingly turn to The Nickles Group for not only policy expertise, but also their ability to partner on issues, share reputation and develop strategy. When a recent international leader addressed a Joint Session of Congress, The Nickles Group was by their side having worked to increase Congressional awareness of the country’s issues and diplomatic challenges.
When a health care client wanted more doctors recommending a cost effective treatment for diabetes, The Nickles Group enlisted Congress to incentivize physician use of this convenient treatment. The result? Growth in the number of patients utilizing the treatment and eventual Medicare coverage for it.
