About Us

Horizon Government Affairs was founded in 2007 by Joel White, a veteran of Capitol Hill who served as staff director for the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee. Since then, we have built an impressive bipartisan team of thought leaders and problem solvers with decades of experience in securing wins for our clients. 

As experts in our field, we help our clients pass legislation, change regulations, testify to Congress, and drive the conversation on emerging issues. We do this through creative policy development, data driven-insights, innovative issue campaigns and advocacy strategies and through coalitions of allies we have cultivated for years.

Horizon Government Affairs is trusted by lawmakers, influencers and clients alike because we lead with integrity and get it right the first time. 

Our Approach

We are a full-service government affairs firm recognized in Washington for our well-established coalitions, deep policy
expertise, and effective advocacy:



Policymakers are bombarded with information, news and data. Our team knows how to break through the noise with a combination of targeted and strategic engagement and sophisticated use of media channels. We work across the aisle to create more opportunities for our clients.



Our clients bring us business challenges; we deliver tailored policy solutions and results. We bring an intimate understanding of the laws and regulations and a thoughtful approach that extends into fiscal analyses and budget estimates to allow for higher level decision making.


Alliance Development

Our five broad-based coalitions align diverse interests around common issues. With more than 200 members, we generate informed consensus that turns sound policy into law.
