American Defense International (ADI) is mainly a lobbying firm. It describes itself as "a Washington, DC-based consulting firm specializing in government affairs, business development, and public relations ... [which] serves a worldwide client base -- both businesses and governments -- with a unique combination of technical expertise, relationships, and the ability to work with Washington's most important decision makers and opinion leaders."

"As the descriptions of [the ADI] staff and Board of Advisors show, ADI's top-notch personnel includes former senior government officials, military officers, and congressional aides. Having started with a focus on national defense and military matters, ADI has since branched into other areas including homeland security, health care, telecommunications, shipping and maritime, biomedical research and engineering, and general government services. financial transaction services."[2]

The ADI membership is exceedingly willing to step up to the political contribution collection plate.
