ABOUT A10 ASSOCIATES

Our Story

A10 Associates is the Nation’s largest woman-owned bipartisan lobbying firm with nearly 30 years of combined experience on Capitol Hill, in the White House, and across state governments nationwide. A10 Associates is a government relations and strategic communications firm focused exclusively on transportation, infrastructure, and technology industries, and operating federally as well as within 32 individual states.

Our team delivers strategic coverage to clients looking to engage government at all levels, strengthen their public profile, and enhance their national market share. Prioritizing policy over politics, we strive to repair the country’s infrastructure and bolster economic development.

A10 Associates is a family business, and our mission is to create the ability for our employees and clients, as mothers, fathers, sons and daughters, to be able to succeed in government as well as at home.  We want to see women, minorities, and disadvantaged populations advance in this industry that has traditionally been very difficult to penetrate.  We treat our employees, clients, and contacts as family and are here to help everyone that is part of our team grow and succeed together

Our Approach

Our team applies a market-based approach that supplements traditional lobbying practices with market-driven business practices and strategic public relations and communications campaigns. This approach has proven successful in generating profitable public and private partnerships throughout the country.

Our Values

Our commitment to clients and partners is to always be kind, truthful, and give our best to get results for clients.

Nationwide

We're Bipartisan
