The Estell Group is a non-partisan full-service boutique, minority-woman-owned business specializing in government relations and assisting clients with effective citizen engagement and advocacy strategies. Yes. We lobby. And we do so much more.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, we offer a comprehensive suite of services and programs, including master-class instruction through the Estell Group Advocacy Institute. We assist individuals and enterprises, such as cities, universities, non-profits, major corporations and other entities with direct representation, legislative drafting, elected-leader relationship management and engagement, convenings, Hill Days and fly-ins.
We trace our beginnings to 1993. At that time, the founding member of our leadership team joined on the ground floor as a principal of a firm that soon became the leading independent lobbying firm in the US. The Estell Group incorporates the best practices derived from years in the executive suite of industry leaders in ways that meet and support the requirements of today’s dynamic government relations and civic engagement sectors without the layers of bureaucracy and costs.
In our constantly changing world, it’s vitally important to know what’s needed NOW. We do. The Estell Group knows how to connect the right strategies and tactics with that “NOW” to create successful solutions for our clients.
We value our longstanding and trusted relationships with Republicans and Democrats in Congress, the executive branch, and national leaders; with media outlets, national associations, third-party groups and in communities across cultures — locally and nationally. Through our vast array of experiences, we have the ability to move across a cluttered playing field to access and leverage our familiarity and relationships at the national level and beyond.
Whether you are an organization, community, corporation, or citizen, everyone needs an advocate. With more than 300 million people in the US, 6 billion people in the world and only 535 members of Congress, advocacy is critical to ensuring that your voice is heard, your views are considered and your rights are protected when federal policy makers are making decisions that affect you and those you care about. At the Estell Group, we offer a full ecosystem of advocacy services with integrated communications channels that support congressional and executive branch outreach, relationship management, media campaigns, third-party outreach, grassroots and grasstops engagement, lobbying, and more. Select areas where we have achieved notable client results using advocacy approaches and tools include education, health care, transportation, energy and environment, community development, civil rights, food and nutrition, financial services, science and technology, research and development.
Our bold reputation is why you’ll come.
Bold results is why you’ll stay.
