WASHINGTON, April 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Lon Goldstein, President, and Maryam Cope, Managing Partner, announced the official launch of their firm, GoldsteinCope Policy Solutions LLC (GPS).

The new firm will help clients anticipate and influence public policy and regulatory transformations, including those that are disrupting almost every aspect of the U.S. economy and altering today's business approaches and techniques.
"GoldsteinCope Policy Solutions was formed when we saw a gap in the market; companies and organizations need dynamic policy solutions for the problems of tomorrow. We've worked with and for some of the best teams in town, and that informs our approach tremendously," said Lon Goldstein. "Through our diverse range of expertise and extensive knowledge in influencing policy and navigating the halls of Congress, GoldsteinCope Policy Solutions helps businesses bridge the gap with regulators and policymakers that oversee a business community that is moving faster than policy can react," said Maryam Cope.
