Each firm, in addition to meeting a revenue threshold, had to exhibit revenue growth, accretive growth (positive percentage change in year-over-year average revenue per client), two measures of customer satisfaction, and sizable revenue per registered lobbyist.”  Of additional note, this is only the third BGOV analysis and the very first to include lobbying firms of all sizes.  For a full analysis, visit Bloomberg Government or for more information about our firm, reach out to us on our Contact page.
