What Makes Us Unique

Rather than operating in the traditional model, Purple Nation Solutions takes a new multi-disciplinary approach to a client’s needs. We integrate law, media, and politics with our extensive bipartisan networks providing clients with a full service public affairs, lobbying, and crisis management firm. For those who need the privilege of legal counsel, we maintain a seamless strategic alliance with the law firm Lanny J. Davis & Associates.

Our name is derived from Lanny’s weekly “Purple Nation” column appearing in the Hill, the Daily Caller, Foxnews.com, Newsmax.com, the Huffington Post and the Jakarta Globe every Thursday.

We provide decisive counsel that only comes with that experience of managing crises. Our team brings decades of high-profile media experience and relationships with the leading journalists in Washington and around the world.

Providing strategic advice in sensitive situations can have legal implications. As a legal crisis manager, Lanny Davis and Michael Steele have the unique ability to simultaneously provide legal advice and act as a public relations consultant. With attorney-client privilege, Lanny and Michael not subject to depositions and document production. We are able to offer our clients protection by attorney-client privilege as well as attorney-client work product privilege under applicable case law.
