This is a Public Policy & Business Strategy Session with one of our advisors. Our goal is to give you unparalleled advice to save you capital. We will assess your situation and identify the driving issues that are holding you back, offer key recommendations, and map out the scope of a more in-depth review. Sometimes you know you need to speak with an advisor but are unsure what exactly you need. You may have a brilliant business idea but no clue what to do next.
Let's dive deep into your political, public policy, and business needs, and come up with a comprehensive action strategy. Perfect for specific action plans and quick document review.
The Public Policy & Business Strategy Session is for business, political candidates, lawmakers, entrepreneurs, and start-ups. Best of all if you later retain our team, the cost of the session will be credited towards future fees. Once you remit the prepaid, flat fee ($350/hr) for the Public Policy & Business Strategy Session, we’ll send you our engagement letter so we can get to work.
Thank you for entrusting us as your public policy and business advisor. We look forward to working with you!

A payment does not create an advisor-client or formal lobbying contractual relationship and one should not be inferred by the recipient. Such a relationship may only be created by both a written retainer agreement with MSGlobal Partners, LLC, signed by the managing partner and potential client and payment of agreed-upon fees.
Georgia Law: Georgia Code §21-5-70 and §21-5-71
When a person is hired or retained as an employee or agent or independent contractor and under the agreement of the parties the primary duties, or a substantial part of the duties, of the person will involve lobbying activities, the person shall register as a lobbyist before commencing lobbying activities.
It’s against the law for lobbyists to get paid on commission. Don’t think of them like sales reps – they’re not. Instead, think of them more like attorneys – you pay them for their services. It’s against the law for lobbyists to get paid bonuses. However, there’s still a way to pay them incentives for performance, in the form of promises for continued business.
A fee to Raise Capital for Your Business is Generally Illegal
If a company’s owner, director, officer or employee has substantial other duties to the company and is not otherwise in the business of raising capital or transacting securities for the account of others, then the insider is arguably not required to register with the SEC as a broker-dealer.
Broker-Dealer Registration Requirement
Under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and state securities laws, a “broker-dealer” is “any person engaged in the business of effecting transactions for the account of others.” It is unlawful for any broker-dealer to “effect any transaction in, or induce or attempt to induce the purchase or sale of, any security” without first registering as a broker-dealer with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and applicable state regulators. Registered broker-dealers must also be members of a self-regulatory organization-generally the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA, formerly known as the National Association of Securities Dealers)-and comply with SEC regulations regarding financial responsibility and market conduct.
Harsh Penalties for Issuer Using Unregistered Broker
A finder’s failure to properly register as a broker-dealer may subject the finder to potential liability, including investor rescission claims as well as civil administrative penalties, criminal penalties, and imprisonment. More critically for the issuer, the company and its controlling persons (directors, officers, controlling shareholders) may also be held liable to investors and regulators.
