The Hill reports that boutique lobbying firms are holding their own in terms of revenue.
“There is an increasing recognition that smaller firms hustle more and can do things at a lower price point,” said Stewart Verdery, founder of Monument Policy Group, which saw a roughly 15 percent growth in business. “We have eight people and no support staff. We don’t pay for a whole contingent of secretaries and researchers.”
Scott Parven, of Parven Pomper Strategies Inc., said his clients benefit from having all six of the firm’s staffers working on every contract.
