Englander Knabe & Allen is a strategic communications firm specializing in government affairs, communications, litigation support, and issues management. The Los Angeles Business Journal recently named our firm the largest independent public affairs agency in Los Angeles County.

Most public relations firms hand-off creative work to junior staffers, many with less than five years’ experience; our clients know that only seasoned professionals work on their accounts. Since inception, EKA has taken a different approach to client service. Each of the firm’s partners brings a decade or more of experience and expertise developing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, trade associations, government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofits. Strategy and implementation is provided only by partners, senior vice presidents or vice presidents.
