Solving problems through community engagement

What We Do

Public Affairs

Whether it is responding to regulators, seeking growth opportunities, or putting together a public-private partnership, our team provides best in class support to our clients.

Strategic Counsel

We partner with our clients to identify and define the challenges they face and develop strategies to meet their goals.

Community Engagement

We solve client problems, from public policy to land use and beyond, through community engagement.


Who We Are

At Cooley Public Strategies, we solve problems through community engagement. Our team works with each client to find solutions that work for them, whether it includes engaging policymakers, building relationships with opinion leaders, designing and executing media relations, conducting issue or market analysis, or social and influencer outreach.


We have built a network of partners in 38 states that has given CPS the ability to shape policy at every level of government. CPS has successfully worked to expand public lands, facilitate government procurement projects and public-private partnerships, and assist Fortune 500 companies with mergers and acquisitions.


We bring a campaign approach to everything we do, and we play to win.
