The Washington Advisory Group

The Washington Advisory Group, LLC was founded in 1996 by a small group of experienced, successful leaders of internationally renowned institutions of scientific and engineering research and higher education. The company was formed to provide research strategy, management, and leadership advice to governments, universities, research foundations, and companies.

The Washington Advisory Group was acquired by LECG, LLC in 2004 and operated as an LECG company from 2004 to 2010. During July and August 2010 the leadership, staff and directors of WAG resigned from LECG, and most individuals joined The Advisory Group at Huron.
