We have over 20 years of experience in planning, coordinating and implementing dynamic and agile government relations strategies for companies, trade and professional organizations and other entities in the legislative, executive and regulatory arenas at the state and federal level. 


Providence, RI

We provide our clients with focused legislative strategies to shape results and achieve their objectives.  Maintaining a daily presence in the Rhode Island State House enables us to continue and enhance our close relationships with legislators, key staff and leadership in the General Assembly and key staff in the Executive Branch.

Our reputation as a well-prepared, reliable and trustworthy source of information enhances our ability to achieve results for our client. Our role as advocates requires us to shape and tailor our message for individual members, committees, caucuses and the entire House and Senate.

The principals of F/S Capitol Consulting represent or have represented several national and local corporations and trade associations during the past fifteen years. Many of our clients maintain active government relations operations in most states and several countries. We have established long-standing personal and professional relationships with in-house legislative affairs managers and with contract lobbyists and lawyers throughout the county. These relationships assist us in developing, coordinating and executing successful legislative strategies to protect our client's interests in Rhode Island.
