Our Work

Work & Services

We work on issues we believe in.

The work we do requires deep reserves of passion, creativity and time. We run a comprehensive process that often necessitates expertise in spaces where experts don’t yet exist. We care about the future of our digital world and we choose our clients and partners thoughtfully. 


Communicating is what we do. We know how to thread the needle for the right positioning. We know how to create the story that matters. And we know how to make sure that story is heard by the right people.

Protecting the Internet in Gonzalez v. Google

We created a small, strategic group of respected third party voices to coordinate on strategy and external communications throughout the case. This independent group was able to activate quickly to educate press and policymakers on the immeasurable impact of Section 230, bringing in more voices from the field when necessary. We created a library of assets for the group to use that explained the issue with clear and simple messaging and a microsite that served as a one stop shop for resources and history on the issue. At key points in the case, we assembled comprehensive panels of experts to educate tech, national and court reporters on the complexities of the issue.

A Full Spectrum Future For Wi-Fi

Over 20 years ago, the FCC allocated airwaves in the 5.9 GHz frequency band for a service called DSRC that was supposed to help cars “talk” to infrastructure and each other, alerting drivers if they were going to hit something. But after two decades—an eternity, considering the other automotive safety innovations we’ve seen—DSRC had barely been deployed, meaning this spectrum has been largely unused. Our airwaves are limited and, in our wireless world, many other essential services could take advantage of that spectrum—particularly Wi-Fi.

Protecting Free Speech On Review Platforms

User-driven business review services like Yelp and TripAdvisor help millions of people find the right restaurant, doctor, hotel and more. But some businesses, hoping to avoid negative reviews, began hiding non-disparagement clauses in their terms and services agreements—exposing unsuspecting users to potential lawsuits. This questionable legal tactic began to scare off users core to the success of these sites. We counseled the companies’ public policy and government affairs teams on this fundamental First Amendment issue.
