Norwood Associates is in the top echelon of lobbying and government relations firms in California. Although a “boutique firm,” Norwood & Associates has a professional team and political profile that enables it to handle high profile, difficult and complex issues.
Norwood Associates is known in the State Capitol for its trustworthiness, ethics and expertise. The firm’s professional approach has earned it the trust of a “Blue Chip” list of clients in a variety of important business sectors in California.
Norwood Associates achieves results for its clients through hard work and superior relationships with legislators, regulators and their staffs who respect and appreciate that the firm’s governmental advocates will fully and fairly present the issues and their ramifications.
These qualities were recognized when Norwood Associates founder, John A. Norwood, was named “Most Trustworthy” lobbyist in a Capitol Weekly poll of Legislators and their Chiefs of Staff. The same poll recognized Norwood Associates as one of the top three boutique lobbying firms in the Capitol.
Norwood Associates also is known for its ability to forge effective coalitions and where needed, negotiate a compromise. The firm also maintains a highly effective regulatory practice. The Norwood Associates team has access to the decision makers, knows the process and gets the job done.
Many Norwood Associates clients are exceptionally active in political campaigns, and some have outstanding grassroots capabilities. This adds to the already formidable political profile that has enabled Norwood Associates to enjoy close relationships with the leadership of both political parties and both houses of the Legislature. When a new client engages Norwood Associates, it receives the benefit of this synergy.
