McLarty Associates’ Global Strategies group comprises our firm’s senior leadership with broad global reach to provide our corporate and non-profit clients with guidance on trans- and international issues they may face.
From advising on the world’s largest corporate merger and the largest private equity leveraged buyout to advising CEOs and boards on major strategic decisions and helping clients develop their international government relations capabilities, our Global Strategies team helps our clients navigate between Washington and the international arena.
As our leadership boasts decades of experience in senior US government positions – from the White House to Foggy Bottom to Capitol Hill – the Global Strategies team also assists clients in developing and navigating relationships in Washington. While we do not lobby on behalf of our clients, we do craft and tailor individual Washington strategies for clients to address transnational issues.
