What Crosswater Strategies Can Do For You

Government Relations

We represent clients at the Oregon legislature, with state agencies and at the local level, such as the City of Portland, that have unique public policy challenges. Whether a home grown business association, non-profit or respected international company, Crosswater Strategies works with clients to develop and execute strategies to achieve policy success.

Public Affairs

We develop strategic plans for clients that wish to build long-term working relationship with Oregon’s top political, civic and business leaders, as well as other community influencers. This is an integral part of a multifaceted public policy strategy for our clients. Rich stakeholder relationships are important. We help clients new to Oregon or already established build and deepen lasting relationships with individuals and organizations that will be strategic collaborators in the future.


Any good public policy proposal includes using persuasive communications tools. We imbed communications services into our work for lobbying and public affairs activities. We also offer communications as a standalone service. These services include the development of key messages, production of lobbying materials and presentation tools, public hearing preparation and speech writing.
