Coalition Development: An integral element of any public affairs campaign is a well-informed and organized coalition. The team at Aponté & Busam has significant experience developing and facilitating stakeholder coalitions. Our approach is one of consensus building and working together to come to appropriate compromise and agreement, whenever possible. Relationship Building: Much of the work at the Capitol and in the regulatory arena relies heavily on relationships. The firm has long-standing professional relationships with both sides of the aisle, and actively works to maintain and nurture these important connections. The principals of Aponté & Busam are well regarded as one of Colorado’s premier lobbying teams, and as such have access to all levels of government.
