Al Mottur is a member of the firm's Executive Committee and a senior Democratic strategist who solves the most complex and thorny political issues clients face in Washington, D.C. He connects organizations with leaders at the highest levels of Democratic politics, in both Congress and the Biden administration, and uses his legal and policy intellect to build consensus around solutions. When Fortune 50 corporations or sovereign governments face a major crisis, Al is often the person they turn to. He is at his best in high-pressure, high-stakes scenarios. Al has successfully protected high-profile mergers and acquisitions, defended companies from contentious oversight battles, and delivered legislative victories that saved clients billions of dollars.
As co-chair of the firm’s technology and telecommunication practice, Al engages federal policymakers as they develop legislation and regulations to address emerging technologies, data privacy, Big Tech, competition law and infrastructure. He has strong relationships with political and career officials at the Department of Commerce, FTC and FCC, as well as with Democratic leadership in Congress, including senior members of the House and Senate commerce committees. Al formerly served as senior communications counsel for the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.
In addition to his advocacy, Al is a prolific fundraiser for the Democratic Party. He spearheaded the firm’s bundling efforts during the last presidential election, raising more money for the DNC than any other D.C. lobbying firm.
