Imperium Global Advisors is a boutique government relations firm with a global reach. The award-winning, bipartisan professionals at IGA have decades of experience innovating, advocating, and leading initiatives that shape policies, regulations, and the business of government. From established world-leading organizations to startups engaging the government market for the first time, IGA is trusted because of our proven record of results, our commitment to honesty and integrity, our innovative spirit, and our ability to deliver sustained value regardless of political or policy complexity.
Financial Services
IGA works with a variety of financial services entities to help them navigate the policymaking process, advocate before regulators, understand the political landscape impacting their interests and those of their customers. As highly regulated and often scrutinized entities, financial services firms come to IGA because strategy, insights and effective advocacy are paramount to the issues impacting their business today, and its rapid involvement in the days to come.
Health Care
The United States health care system is a complex and highly regulated marketplace. IGA works with health care providers, patient groups, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, insurers and hospitals. Our work includes dealing with issues ranging from FDA approvals, the Affordable Care Act, taxes, coverage, competition, innovation, pricing and access.
Defense & Homeland Security
IGA works with clients who need to understand, partner with, and influence the military, law enforcement and security community. Our experience includes the Defense Authorizations (NDAA), appropriations, foreign military sales, cyber security, supply chain, CFIUS, homeland security, law enforcement, immigration, transportation security, emergency management, procurement and acquisition.
Transportation, Infrastructure, & Energy
Building and maintaining our physical and digital infrastructure persistently challenges government to innovate, resource, and create policy that meets taxpayer demands. IGA helps clients in the power distribution and generation, water infrastructure, aerospace, engineering and clean/renewable energy industries thread opportunities, shape policies impacting the market, and drive actionable outcomes from government.
With Silicon Valley roots, IGA knows how technology is transforming the economy and the need these companies have for speed, responsiveness and results from policy makers. With an increasing expectation on the industry to engage across a broadening array of issues, we bridge the gap between policymakers and the tech industry. From data protection, cyber, intellectual property, entrepreneurial startups, and workforce development; IGA understands the complexities and intricacies when tech meets government.
Trade & Investment
Trade and trade policy barriers and openings have dramatic impact on markets and its participants. Today’s trade landscape involves more than just treaties and tariffs – it involves a range of dialogues, investment reviews, cooperative relationships with national, state and local governments to create the best combination of value. IGA utilizes a network of consultants across the globe to advocate for clients interests at home and abroad.
Cyber Security
IGA operates at the forefront of cyber security policy. We develop coordinated strategies, policies and advocacy efforts to help our clients lead the discussion, intelligently react to policies, and mitigate threats. This also includes providing strategic advisory to clients in the acquisition and procurement of cyber resources by the government to maximize impact of opportunities presented.
Government Procurement & Operations
The systems and policies governments use to operate are built through political processes and use business processes unique from those of the private sector. To understand the decision-making process, Imperium has ongoing dialogues across government. Imperium is an invaluable resource to any company seeking to do business with the government, complying with a request from an agency or seeking to get aligned with the government’s operating requirements across both defense and civilian agencies.
Lobbying & Public Affairs

The IGA team has served in senior positions in the House of Representatives, the Senate, Executive Branch, statehouses, foreign capitals and on federal & state political campaigns. We know what works and what doesn’t when trying to influence policymakers because we have sat on both sides of the table. We take pride in working with your team to craft strategy and materials that make your issue easy to understand and impactful. Our team can integrate with an existing Washington team, or be your direct eyes and ears to help develop new strategies and innovative approaches to secure interests in an ever evolving political and regulatory environment.

State & Local Government

IGA’s state and local practice is built on experience. Our granular knowledge of state and local government processes and proven track record of leading and advising top corporations’ state and local public affairs teams ensures that we are ready to hit the ground running, whether driving policy initiatives or creating business opportunities for the clients we serve. 

Federal Market Analysis

The IGA team has deep relationships with procurement officials from the General Services Administration to the Department of Defense. We have helped organizations get their foot in the door with agency leaders and offices that make major procurement decisions. IGA can seamlessly integrate with your existing sales staff to help federal buyers understand the value and necessity of your product or service.

Thought Leadership & Positioning

IGA can help your organization build a thought leadership and positioning program to help you get better results from policy makers across the government. From Fortune 500 organizations to recently formed startups, we’ve developed thought leadership campaigns that can connect your organization and drive engagement and relationships with elected leaders, think tanks, trade associations and the beltway media.
