As top political strategists, policy analysts and communications experts, our principals and staff —former top aides in the White House, Senate, House, State Houses, leading industry advocacy groups and Fortune 500 corporations— are recognized and respected as leaders in our fields. Our expertise gives us the ability to offer our clients a clear window into the workings of Washington, as well as the necessary tools to navigate and succeed in this critical environment and define a path to victory.

Our Practice Areas

At Venn, we constantly endeavor to expand our advocacy and never limit our scope of work. Most of our current client work, however, can be categorized in to four main practice areas – Health, Tax & Financial Services, Critical Infrastructure and Oversight & Investigations. Each requiring their own unique insights and specific approaches, our specialties cover impactful fields and complex issue areas.
