WHEN CAPITAL CITY CONSULTING WAS FOUNDED IN 2003, the goal was to build an organization with equal strength in policy and politics, in communications and connections, and in access and advocacy. Founders Nick Iarossi, Ron LaFace, Gerald Wester, and Pat O’Connell envisioned a public affairs and Florida consulting firm comprised of the most talented individuals in their respective fields, where each is more accomplished than the next, and where their drive to win means they never give up on their clients’ goals.

Over the years, that bold vision has catapulted Capital City Consulting into Florida’s top tier of lobbying firms.

“We’ve been successful because of our talented, hard working team.”

-Ron LaFace, Founder



Out think. Out hustle. Out perform.


WHEN YOU DIVE DEEPER INTO ISSUES, are more diligent in preparation, and just plain work harder, an amazing thing happens—you end up with very, very happy clients. Our Florida consulting team works around the clock to give our clients the best shot at success. It’s been part of our DNA from the beginning and it plays a huge roll in our success as a crisis management firm today.

But don’t just take our word for it.

In recent years, we’ve been named “Lobbying Firm of the Year” by Influence Magazine and featured in Florida Trend’s “Florida’s Biggest Lobbyists: Turning Up the Heat”. Members of our team have been recognized as the best lobbyists in the appropriations, insurance, emergency management, and gaming sectors in multiple publications, while others have been recognized by the Florida Standard as leading Florida lobbyists overall. Our expertise is deep, our access is broad, and our competition is scant.
