Premiere Government Relations for the State of Tennessee
Working with you, we design a government relations plan to successfully represent your interests before the Legislative and Executive branches of government. Whether it’s supporting or opposing legislation or proposed regulations by a state agency — or pursuing funding opportunities in the state budget — we have the expertise to help you reach your government relations goals.
We guide our clients through the competitive, and sometimes complicated, process of contracting with the State of Tennessee. We help them learn about opportunities, build strong relationships, and form lasting partnerships that are both good for business and meet the needs of state agencies.
During each legislative session more than 1,000 individual bills are introduced in the Tennessee State Legislature. State agencies publish thousands of proposed regulations. We monitor each and every one of these bills and proposed regulations to ensure that our client’s interests are protected.

Government relations has evolved into more than just talking to legislators. At JohnsonPossKirby, we offer a unique blend of services, with the ability to integrate strategic communication planning with our core government relations services.
We are continuously in close contact with those involved in Tennessee’s legislative process, including members of the Assembly and the Senate, officials in the Governor’s office, key figures in the state bureaucracy, and legislative staff.
These continuing relationships enable us to guide the legislative process to give our clients the best possible chance of a successful outcome: the enactment of laws advocated by our clients or the defeat of legislation opposed by our clients. Give us a call or send us an email to find out how we can design a government relations plan for your company or organization.
