We believe the best approach to complex public policy challenges is to understand them from the ground up – carefully considering the client, the substantive issues, the political environment and the audiences our clients must reach to attain their objectives.
From our founding in 2001 by former Assistant Attorney General Robert Raben, The Raben Group has grown to more than 50 employees in our Washington, Los Angeles, and New York City offices. Our clients take advantage of a tailored suite of services including policy development, direct lobbying, coalition building, grass-tops campaigns, political counsel and strategic communications.
We pride ourselves on a unique approach that is unusually substantive and creative. Working with both Republican and Democratic Congresses and presidential administrations, we have used our range of experience, insight and access to help our clients set and achieve their goals in fields as diverse as intellectual property, labor, health, education, financial services, multiculturalism, constitutional law and social justice.
We are united not only by our interest in public policy, but by our shared values. Many of us volunteer for philanthropic organizations. Others serve on the boards of national and local non-profits. As a firm, we help organize charity events and endeavor to donate a certain amount of our time to pro bono projects. We believe in treating people with honesty, courtesy and respect.
And we always keep our sense of humor.
