Cornerstone Government Relations is the culmination of a 2021 merger between two leading government relations and corporate advisory agencies, Sydney’s Cornerstone Group and Brisbane’s GovStrat.

Our management team and advisory Board bring unparalleled, bipartisan experience in the political and public policy arena.

Cornerstone’s clients are spread across a diverse range of industries from medical care to defence, resources, gaming and wagering, hospitality, financial services, renewable energy, the gig economy and transport, to name a few.

Our formidable range of contacts span the breadth of Australia’s key decision-makers, both at a state and Federal level as well as within the boardrooms of corporate Australia and with peak industry bodies, interest groups and the media.

With leadership comes responsibility. All our business dealings are conducted within a strong ethical framework; this underpins the relationships we have built over time. We aim to balance commercial imperatives for clients with positive economic and social outcomes.

Cornerstone team members are passionate about the work they do for every client, on every project. We are upfront in all our dealings and we expect the same from our clients. Being open and honest is critical to achieving positive outcomes.

We know that the outcomes we strive to deliver for clients have direct flow-on effects. They should deliver a net benefit for society. We are strongly attuned to delivering outcomes that deliver social and environmental benefits for all.

We work to clearly defined objectives in a transparent manner and accept responsibility for our decisions and actions. We seek to apply all of our resources effectively for clients and we submit ourselves to appropriate scrutiny.

We treat everyone in a considerate, fair and courteous manner. We maintain confidentiality and treat private information in a highly sensitive way. Our team members collaborate and engage constructively with each other and with clients towards a common goal – and we share our successes.
