Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that Peter M. Goodloe has joined the firm’s Government Relations Department as Of Counsel in the Washington, D.C. office. He will focus on health-related public policy issues.
Goodloe brings over 23 years of experience developing policy and legislation as an attorney for the U.S. House of Representatives, first with the House Office of Legislative Counsel for many years, and later with the House Energy and Commerce Committee. He entered private practice in 2009 and has provided counsel to a wide variety of pharmaceutical and medical device companies, as well as professional medical organizations. His projects for clients have involved analyzing and responding to regulatory issues, engaging in advocacy on Capitol Hill, and drafting legislation. As a counsel in Congress, Peter helped draft and pass key legislation relating to the FDA, NIH, CDC, DEA, and other health-related agencies.
“Health care regulations impact a variety of our clients and Peter’s wealth of experience concerning health-related government agencies and Capitol Hill will further enhance the type of analysis and strategy our team can offer in these areas of public policy,” said Marc Lampkin, chair of Brownstein’s Government Relations Department.
The Washington D.C. office recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and is currently ranked No. 2 in the country for lobbying revenue. Brownstein’s Washington, D.C., Government Relations team is growing, and recently added former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) as a strategic advisor and Tyler Tilghman as policy assistant.
Prior to joining Brownstein, Goodloe provided counsel on health-related public policy issues as an attorney in the Washington, D.C. office of Sidley Austin. He earned his law degree from Vanderbilt University Law School and his bachelor’s degree summa cum laude from Birmingham-Southern College. He also was an adjunct professor at the George Washington University School of Law for 14 years.
