With a keen understanding of the intersection between policy and public affairs, TRP also maintains key relationships with influential members of the Washington press corps, providing the opportunity to achieve earned media placements for clients that can lend support to their lobbying efforts. Additionally, experience with numerous governors and state officials enables TRP to successfully engage with various state governments, most notably Oregon, where the firm maintains an office.
