Evidence-Driven Advocacy sm
Even the most highly competitive organizations sometimes find public policy issues are a unifying force. When a law or regulation potentially impacts an industry segment or voluntary health association, it can be essential to unite and win the policy battle even as day-to-day competition goes on in the marketplace. Our creative coalition concepts make allies of like-minded health and life sciences organizations and multiply our strength. People suffering from medical conditions urgently want therapies and technology that can help them. So do their families and friends and the larger community of related research and support associations. FaegreBD Consulting coalition campaigns harness the energies of all these groups to advance key legislative and regulatory initiatives.
FaegreBD Consulting specializes in bringing companies, trade associations and interest groups together into coalitions – sometimes formally sometimes informally – to design and manage public policy strategies and campaigns.
Our professionals understand and respect the sensitivities involved in such alliances. They know how to work with coalition members to keep all parties focused on the goal at hand and to avoid any actions that would give one coalition member any unfair advantages. They are skilled at developing strategies, messages and tactics that unify normally disparate entities and advance a common goal while leaving all parties free to pursue individual goals – in public policy and other arenas – that do not conflict with the coalition's targeted goals and activities.
