When you choose us to help tackle your core governmental issues we provide you direct lobbying assistance to the South Carolina General Assembly. As a bipartisan firm, we offer you multiple access points to the major decision makers in South Carolina. Whether you seek new legislation, wish to modify regulations, or want us to stop adverse legislation, we have the skill set to achieve your desired results under the most difficult of legislative circumstances.



Sometimes the lobbying efforts you need are not at the state capacity and we recognize and understand that. Therefore, we provide local outreach efforts to help you zero-in on the issues that affect your organization on the regional or municipal level. These services can include issues centered around procurement, grants, land use, subsidies, and licenses and many other local issues that may be ailing your organization.


Our connections in state politics makes us the go-to source for introductions to our federal delegation. We can act as the middle-man to voice your concerns, monitor government proceedings and actions, and attend the necessary meetings and events that will better inform you of what is going on in Washington and at the Statehouse. 



We can bring together the best people in our state to engage in political discourse on your behalf. We start movements that help you reach your end goals. Collaboration, branding and thought leadership guide our grassroots philosophy that delivers the results you desire. Just look at our record to see how we organize individuals to rally around an issue.


What We Do

How did two lifelong Republicans come to team up with a lifelong Democrat to start a lobbying shop?

To start, we were friends and colleagues before beginning this venture together and we’ve remained friends since, so it works well. We believe that there is no answer on either extreme of the spectrum and that answers are usually found somewhere in the middle.

Knowing how to get to that answer is what we offer our clients.

Warren began his lobbying career after leaving Governor Carroll Campbell’s office, where he served as Chief of Staff, in 1991. For the next 25 years, he would become known as one of the state’s top policy minds and strategists.


In 2015, Michael and Boyd saw a void in the lobby. They served in the House together for a term, but were fast friends. They saw that the members they served with were now leaders within the General Assembly and that they could be useful for potential clients. So the two teamed up to form their own government affairs practice. 


Shortly thereafter, over a beer and a Chicago Cubs baseball game in 2016, we all met and decided to team up. The Cubs went on to win the World Series that fall, and the three of us teamed up around the same time to create Tompkins, Thompson & Brown.


In October 2019, former House colleague, Jim Merrill, became a partner of TT&B.
