I'm Frank Salinger and I've spent over 30 years helping companies unravel the federal and state legislative and regulatory knots that impede business. The essence of legislative and regulatory analysis is simple: What is the author’s intent? How will impact your company? Is the proposal legally sound? Does it have unintended consequences that will impact your business, your customers and other stakeholders? What can and should you do to influence the outcome?

 

I offer the political background and skill sets you need to win in Washington, the state capitals and before the federal agencies. Unlike large firms, you won’t be paying someone fresh out of school to learn their craft. I'll implement the strategies and tactics to solve your problem and achieve your goal. If I can’t help you, I’ll tell you and suggest alternatives. To reach me or to subscribe to my newsletter about business and politics, please contact me using the form below. Let's get started.
