The Alpine Group is a bipartisan, bicameral government affairs consulting firm located on Capitol Hill. Our clients include Fortune 100 companies, private equity firms, trade associations, local governments and others. The Alpine Group is consistently ranked one of the top lobbying firms in Washington, and its personnel are recognized as substantive and political experts. Consisting of 18 professionals representing years of experience in a variety of senior political capacities, the firm provides strategic advice and implements those tactics to help clients successfully navigate the halls of Congress, the White House and federal agencies. As trusted advisors to our clients and for many policy makers, the Alpine Group is able to sort through the miasma of perspectives and opinions that derail so many other efforts in a way that consistently achieves the goals our clients set.
The firm also possesses vast experience in managing coalitions and ad hoc groups united for a common goal. The vast experience of the Alpine team – both within government and the private sector – allows us to create and manage campaigns on behalf of clients on a wide range of issues and policy areas that require managing grassroots activation, messaging, creation of economic analyses and a host of other tools.
As a bipartisan and bicameral firm, our clients are able to benefit from expertise and far-ranging relationships on both sides of Capitol Hill and both sides of the political aisle. Most issues we address for our clients require an expert sense of how a message or request will be received by policy makers and that can vary by party affiliation, geographical location or larger political dynamics. We are able to lead efforts to tailor each campaign so that it is appropriately tuned to maximum effect.
The Alpine Group’s offices are located on Capitol Hill, only a few blocks from the House and Senate office buildings and the U.S. Capitol. Even in an era of electronic communication, there remains no substitute to being in the corridors of power each day working with elected officials and their staff.

Brown to Alpine
POLITICO, October 3, 2012
Barry Brown, chief of staff to Rep. Mike Burgess (R-Texas), is leaving for the Alpine Group. Brown, who has been on the Hill for more than 20 years, is joining as a vice president. He previously served as legislative director for Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and as a congressional aide to Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas).
Alpine Group Remains Top 25 Firm
The Alpine Group was again listed among the top 25 firms by The Hill (7/21/09). The ranking was based on revenues received federal lobbying activities for the first half of 2009. Fourteen of the top 25 firms saw revenue declines in the first half of the year; however, the Alpine Group did not experience a decline. The Hill is a Washington, D.C. publication which covers politics, the Congress, the Administration, and the lobbying business.
Climate Lobbying Dominated by 10 Firms
POLITICO, May 20, 2009
Lobbyists are cramming into a Rayburn House Office Building hearing room this week for the Energy and Commerce Committee's markup of landmark legislation to curb global warming through a complex cap-and-trade system.
But some of those lobbyists will carry a bit more weight -- or at least a heftier client list -- than others.
Alpine Group - 13 clients
May 20, 2009
It's no surprise that Alpine Group tops the list, given its environment and energy pedigree. The shop was co-founded in 1996 by Richard White, former legislative coordinator for the late Sen. John Chafee (R-R.I.) ... and by James Massie, a longtime energy lobbyist. Alpine Group's list of 13 climate clients includes Ford, BP American, BNSF Railway, 3M, Duke Energy and NRG Energy.
Top Lobbyists: Hired Guns
The Hill, May 14, 2009
The last election gave Democrats the White House and firmer control of Congress. That power shift has been reflected on K Street, where Democratic lobbyists, not long ago relegated to almost an afterthought, are once again in vogue. What follows is The Hill's annual effort to name a few of the best lobbyists for hire in town.
Rhod Shaw, The Alpine Group. Shaw is welcome in Democratic and Republican offices alike as a strategic thinker who knows the lay of the land in Congress as well as anyone. One of the most frequently nominated names on the list.
