Squire Patton Boggs Announces Leadership Team for Public Policy Practice

Patton Boggs

Last week, the newly formed law firm of Squire Patton Boggs announced new hires and new leadership for its practice of public policy, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Former Senators Trent Lott and John Breaux will lead the policy-related work performed by the firm on a global level. The two had their own practice before it was acquired by Patton Boggs back in 2010. The former chairman of Patton Boggs, Thomas Boggs Jr., will “serve as guiding light” to the group, as announced in a statement from the law firm. Multiple partners from both sides of the merger will have a role as well, including Squire Sanders’ Al Cardenas.

Boggs said the following in the release about his new position with the firm:

“The role of a traditional lobbyist has changed. Clients around world are concerned with global regulatory challenges in markets that are following the US model. We are now able to address the needs of clients anywhere government power influences the outcomes of disputes, transactions, regulatory or lobbying matters. I am energized by the strengths we have brought together in this combination, and have no thought of slowing down.”

Breaux said the following in the release from the firm:

“We are enthusiastic about the expanded global capabilities of the combined firm and the opportunities to work with legacy Squire Sanders professionals around the world.”

Lott said the following in the release: “We have, of course, been very proud of what we have been able to achieve with legacy Patton Boggs since joining the firm, and we are impressed with the opportunity to become even more a part of the fabric of the combined firm.  In an era when global legislative and regulatory trends affect businesses more and more, it makes great sense to apply our skills and experience, and those of the combined firm, to solving problems for businesses, not only in the US, but around the world.”

One of the lawyers leaving Patton Boggs following the merger is Douglas Mishkin, who worked as an employment lawyer. He will join Venable LLP in the Washington, D.C. office.
