The Lewis-Burke EcoSystem

Consensus / Coalition

Allies make you stronger and add to the weight of your message. We lead major research advocacy coalitions, participate in higher education associations, and are always looking to ensure our clients’ needs are included in the broader research advocacy community. We form new coalitions and are always seeking areas where groups may have mutual interests and complementary agendas to strengthen our reach.


Long-lasting Relationships

Our record speaks for itself. After almost 30 years, our first clients are still with us today. We achieve success through trusted relationships with congressional offices, research agencies, and policy influencers that give us early intelligence and the ability to shape future policies and programs. Decades of experience and long standing government/agency relationships let us achieve success for our clients again and again.


Diverse Team Approach

We are deeply collaborative, bringing together experts with diverse backgrounds, experience, and perspectives. Through extensive mentorship, we also give our experts the freedom to explore new areas, challenge themselves, and grow their capabilities. As our client you benefit from our whole office — working together for a comprehensive strategy that fits your evolving needs and interdisciplinary capabilities.



There are many ways we can advance your policy and funding agenda — from advocacy to growth strategies, positioning and profile raising, to building new partnerships and facilitating strategic agenda development. Lewis-Burke delivers both the established services you expect while always looking to explore new ways and novel methodologies that can advance our client funding and policy interests.
