SGR LLC has landed a $40K per-month pact to provide government relations/consulting services to Qatar, which has been under an economic blockade by its Arab neighbors led by Saudi Arabia.
The PR engagement is through law firm Venable and calls for SGR to handle outreach to the US Congress, federal policymakers and the media.
Under the agreement, Qatar's DC embassy provides SGR written directions at the beginning of each month to outline the specific actions to be performed during that period.
SGR is to receive its retainer by the 5th of each month. If payment is not received by the 10th, SGR has the right to stop its work.
The Arab states erected their blockade mid-June of last year due to Qatar's alleged support of terror groups and its cozy relationship with Iran.
