This is who we are.

Our people come from a wide range of political and professional backgrounds. As individuals, they bring special skills, broad knowledge, and significant relationships to their work. As a group, there is no greater force in Pennsylvania politics.

Kara Beem, Esq. Senior Associate

For over two decades, Kara has marshalled several public affairs campaigns resulting in the passage of legislation that initially had limited support or interest from state lawmakers.  Prior to joining Greenlee Partners, Kara served as General Counsel and Legislative Director of a Harrisburg-based lobbying firm where she represented corporations and associations on a variety of issues including labor, healthcare and education matters.

She is tenacious in her quest to continually raise the bar when it comes to exceeding clients’ expectations. An experienced and welcomed veteran in the Capitol, Kara effectively lends her expertise to the success of our clients. Kara has an uncanny ability to step back from issues and see the larger picture, develop a strategic plan to address the situation, and execute that plan. 

With her thorough understanding of state law, Kara has proven to be invaluable in the drafting of legislation for our clients.

Kara has been very successful in building lasting, strategic relationships for both herself and our clients. Her ability to raise the profile of even relatively unknown entities and issues is highly regarded among peers both on and off the Hill.

It is critical that we are positioning the clients, so that lawmakers know who they are and understand their critical role in the Commonwealth.  It is not about advancing me or Greenlee.
