EIS Solutions – A Path to Victory

We take on the tough fights and seemingly impossible tasks when others shy away. From running high-profile candidate and issue campaigns, to strategically guiding Fortune 500 companies and the nation’s largest trade groups through high-stakes permitting, public relations, and crisis communication fights, helping global energy companies build inter-state pipelines, winds farms, and substations, or driving opposition and public opinion research for a diverse range of candidates, causes and corporations, EIS has a track record of winning – of creating a path to victory on the big fights and tough challenges our clients face.

Whether or not the fight is on the front page of the newspaper, winning is important to our clients. EIS’s track record of winning tough local and parochial fights speaks to our ability to successfully manage large and complex campaigns and forge the path to victory.

From expanding a coal mine in La Plata County to passing a new roads tax in conservative Colorado Springs, or paving the way for one of Colorado’s largest housing developments to overcome NIMBY obstruction, and defeating a ban on fracking in swing counties across the state, EIS has led its clients to victory, no matter the challenge.
