About Us

Founded in 2002, Sean P. Dunn & Associates specializes in assisting clients with pending issues before the Ohio General Assembly and Administration. We use our more than 50 years of combined government relations expertise (and a whole lot of worn shoe leather) in Columbus to get you where you need to go for results. We draw on our savvy to recognize when a government issue can quickly become a public relations threat. We know when to operate behind the scenes and when to capture the limelight, depending on what is needed.

The realization of our clients' goals is our top priority. We understand navigating the political arena may mean the difference between successful gain and devastating loss for your organization. When we assess an issue, we use a comprehensive lens to factor in all disciplines of public affairs including policy, legislative and executive lobbying, grassroots advocacy, regulation, procurement opportunities, political realities, and legal and public relations ramifications. This holistic methodology enables us to advance the interests of our clients from a broad spectrum of industries such as information technology, education, healthcare, insurance, telecommunications, and energy.

Our highly-customized approach is a signature of the firm. Once we analyze your needs, we work tirelessly to create a thoughtful, strategic game plan to tackle complex issues and produce tangible results.


We tell it like it is. We demystify the enactment of regulation and legislation to make sure you understand the critical path to achieve your goals. Our ethics have earned us respect and trust from both sides of the aisle. You can be confident that we will represent you and your organization using these same high standards.
