Our Approach

Located just a block from the Michigan State Capitol with relationships that span the local, state, and national levels, McAlvey Merchant & Associates is proud to represent more than 40 clients.

Our experience spans industries including energy and the environment, education, healthcare, city government, finance, insurance, telecommunications, and much more. When businesses, CEOs, non-profits, coalitions, and government leaders seek out a strategy and a team to help them solve a problem or face a challenge, they turn to a trusted partner: McAlvey Merchant & Associates.


Don’t take it from us, ask our clients. Our reputation for ethical, transparent, and effective representation is something we’ve earned through 80 years of legislative advocacy experience. Our reputation is based on our results-oriented approach, our intense drive to win, and our ability to navigate complex issues and craft solutions for our clients. We’re proud of our reputation as being a firm that always puts our clients first.


In an era of term limits and high turnover in Lansing, building relationships is not a luxury – it’s the key to success. Our team has decades of deep institutional knowledge and experience forging strong relationships with lawmakers in both parties in a short amount of time. We leverage our network of strong relationships in the Legislature, Administration and business community to ensure success for our clients and help them achieve their goals.


In the end, it’s about winning results for our clients. Period. Our results-driven attitude continues to make our firm grow year after year and makes us a go-to firm for clients who demand results, not talk.
