Our Story

Meguire Whitney launched in 2017, after the closure of Morgan Meguire - a small firm serving many of the same clients for over 20 years. Over the past year, we have demonstrated the benefits of our model as a boutique specialty firm with a team of experienced policy professionals available to provide both substantive depth and comprehensive capacity.

Like our predecessor, Meguire Whitney is a woman-owned firm of three to four professional registered lobbyists and one administrative/legislative associate. Each of the principals of the Meguire Whitney team have served in substantive roles in congressional offices,

Together, we bring nearly 50 years of public policy experience to bear on our clients’ behalf.
