About Us

The Livingston Group, L.L.C. (TLG) was created with the vision of instituting an innovative model for comprehensive government relations and advocacy services in Washington DC, the United States, and the world. TLG’s approach offers clients the bipartisan talents and expertise of its five partners, six former members of Congress, and an unmatched assemblage of senior former executive branch officials, military officers, congressional staff, and other senior level government, policy, legal and business professionals.

The team is further enhanced by a network of strategic advisors and international affiliates whose skills, relationships and global reach complements TLG’s core competencies and allow us to provide a full range of services to meet our current and potential clients' needs.


The Livingston Group was founded in 1999 by Representative Robert L. “Bob” Livingston (R-LA), together with his former Chief of Staff J. Allen Martin and Legislative Director Paul Cambon. As the firm grew other partners joined, including veteran congressional staff and government affairs professionals Bernie Robinson and Martin Cancienne.
