Prime Transatlantic, LLC

Our Mission

Our mission is to help companies shape public policy to navigate the challenges and maximize the opportunities of conducting business in global markets. Our special focus is on the relationship between the United States and the EU and between the U.S. and Germany. 

In 2015 Prime Policy Group, one of the premier Washington DC based advocacy firms, asked John P. Schmitz and Martina Simpkins to join Prime Policy Group and expand its business and client base internationally through a newly created practice named Prime Transatlantic Group. The original concept of Prime Transatlantic Group grew successfully into Prime Transatlantic LLC, an independent affiliate of Prime Policy Group, specializing in serving both U.S. and international businesses and public policy communities. Together John P. Schmitz and Martina Simpkins have extensive international legal experience and deep political knowledge of both U.S. and EU/German governmental institutions and businesses at the highest levels, specializing particularly on U.S. and German businesses and policy issues.  They have significant experience and success both advising Fortune 500 U.S., German, and other EU companies and organizations, and advocating before U.S. Executive agencies, Congress, the White House, high level E.U. institutions, and the German federal government on many diverse issues.
