BGR’s international practice specializes in providing strategic advice, advocacy, and communications strategies for a wide range of clients, including governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations, civil society groups, opposition political parties and coalitions, trade associations, and private individuals.
BGR helps clients navigate the complex business, government, think tank, media, and public policy environment in Washington and helps American and international clients develop and execute strategies for success in key foreign markets. We advocate directly to the U.S. government, develop strategies to influence policymakers in Washington through thought leaders, draw attention to policy issues through media outreach, monitor and analyze foreign policy developments, and help C-suites develop and execute successful international strategies. We engage directly on behalf of our clients in order to resolve specific business and policy issues.
Our success in international politics and business stems from our longstanding relationships with key government and business decision-makers in Washington and in capitals around the world, augmented by our understanding of the complexities – political, economic, security, cultural, and historical – that shape their decisions.
BGR helps clients understand and engage with the U.S. government, including Congress; the Departments of State, Defense, Treasury, and Commerce; the U.S. Development Finance Corporation and Export-Import Bank; and state and local government leaders and agencies. We create and execute both targeted and nationwide public relations campaigns. We liaise with multilateral organizations, including the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the United Nations. We advise clients on potential transactions and facilitate introductions to potential business partners.
