Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that Marc Lampkin is the new office managing partner for the firm’s Washington, DC, office, and co-chair of the firm’s Government Relations Department. In this role, Lampkin will be responsible for handling strategic growth and management of the firm’s DC office and its federal government relations practice. Al Mottur, former DC office managing partner and co-chair of the firm’s Government Relations Department, is stepping down to focus on his lobbying practice after eight years in these leadership positions.
Norm Brownstein, chairman and founding partner of the firm, said, “Our Washington, DC, office has benefited greatly from Al’s leadership these past eight years. We started as a small lobbying shop and today we’re ranked No. 4 in the country by revenue. Marc will build upon the tremendous foundation that Al set. Marc is a terrific advocate who works tirelessly on behalf of his clients to protect and advance their interests. He is a smart strategist and strong consensus builder who’s ready to lead our dynamic DC team.”
Brownstein is a political powerhouse that helps organizations navigate the maze of politics and policy. The firm’s successes can be directly linked to the bipartisan team of veteran strategists, communicators, lawyers, senior executives and former public servants who help to turn political and policy obstacles into opportunities for their clients.
“I am looking forward to focusing on my practice and on advocating for our existing clients and bringing in new ones,” said Mottur. “But I am even more excited about what Marc will bring to our office and the leadership of our firm. He is a unique talent.”
Lampkin, a leading Republican lobbyist and seasoned strategist, brings more than 20 years of veteran campaign, public policy and legislative strategy experience to his clients, as recognized by his repeated citation as one of The Hill’s top 50 lobbyists. Prior to joining Brownstein, Lampkin was a senior lobbyist at Quinn Gillespie for over a decade, prior to which he served in multiple senior positions with the Bush for President Campaign, and as a senior member of Speaker John Boehner’s staff. Lampkin started his congressional career as a counsel on the House Education and Labor Committee and also served as Boehner’s general counsel on the House Republican Conference in 1995.
