Our Clients

  • "I enjoyed the luxury of having LXR Principal and Founder Mike Canning by my side during my years as a board member and president-elect of my association. Mike worked tirelessly with depth and precision to build a federal legislative agenda on behalf of all the association’s members, a collaborative, deliberative, multi-faceted process. Mike designed our lobbying strategy on both sides of the aisle and in both chambers and identified pivotal members of Congress to help advance our legislative agenda. As someone with extensive experience on the Hill, as a Congressional staffer and as an advocate, I place Mike in the highest regard and have the utmost confidence that he will continue to be exceptionally effective for those clients fortunate enough to have him guide their efforts in Washington."

    Stephen D. Irwin former Pennsylvania Commissioner of Banking & Securities
  • "LXR Principal and Founder Mike Canning thoroughly understands the political and legislative arena. He has been instrumental in the development of legislative proposals at both the State and Federal level. He is the one advocate that you want to represent your organization."

    Fred Joseph former Colorado Commissioner of Banking and Securities
  • “I’ve known LXR Group Principal and Founder Mike Canning for nearly 20 years. I’ve worked alongside him on a host of complex policy issues related to financial services and capital markets. He is a poised and seasoned policy professional with a wealth of experience, a talent for legislative strategy, and strong communications skills. He’s also a  relentless and effective advocate. I’ve personally hired Mike to support my work on two occasions in the past, and if the need ever arose, I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.”

    Ryan K. Hedgepeth Veteran Congressional Chief of Staff

    A. Heath Abshure Former Arkansas Securities Commissioner
