Work With Us
It has been a pleasure working with the entire MWSG team this past year. Their knowledge of the political process, legislative strategy, ability to understand complicated business and just plain tireless effort week after week, helped defeat a bill, which was critical so my company’s operations could continue in Michigan. I recommend them without hesitation to anyone needing legislative/regulatory representation.

Midwest’s work has impressed me on multiple levels. Reaching legislative goals in a state where you’re not physically present is always challenging. This team of professionals really listened to the goals of the massage therapy community, developed a comprehensive strategy to reach them, and did it all in a timely manner with excellent communication skills. I unequivocally recommend Midwest Strategy Group.
Midwest Strategy Group’s knowledge of and experience with the legislative process in the State of Michigan, coupled with the respect and relationships they have developed in the capital community, were instrumental in obtaining a successful result.

We engaged the services of Midwest Strategy Group beginning in 2011 following an exhaustive review process and having been served previously by another major firm. In large part, we chose to align ourselves with Midwest because of their knowledge and expertise specifically on transportation issues. We have not regretted our choice for one moment. In addition, over the past 18 months, we have had a need to work closely with other members of the Midwest team on health-field related issues and on creation of a Political Action Committee. Their knowledge, depth of commitment to our needs, and pleasant staff is second-to-none. I highly recommend Midwest Strategy Group!

MAHP has been very fortunate to be one of Midwest Strategy Group’s clients for several years. The issues facing health insurance and the managed care industry remain multi—faceted between appropriations, regulations and enabling legislation. This requires that we engage consulting services, such as Midwest Strategy Group, who know the right buttons to push and the right time for action. This has proven to be a successful recipe for our efforts in the past—was successful this year and I look forward to maintaining our partnership over the coming years and view Nicole and her group as essential to our future success. I would heartily recommend Midwest Strategy Group to other organizations.

My decision to engage Midwest Strategy Group on LS Power’s behalf in Michigan was an excellent one! As an independent energy company new to doing business in the State, LS Power didn’t have any existing allies in government. The Midwest team broke down the process and created a message that ensured strong support for our issues in the legislature. The team quickly absorbed new concepts and energy-specific issues and advocated persistently in the face of powerful opposition. I consider them to be experts on electric industry competitive procurement, local climate change economics and politics as well. They are the go-to lobbying firm in Michigan.
