Matt Towery, CEO of InsiderAdvantage/Poll Position, is rejoining Atlanta-based law firm McKenna Long & Aldridge as of counsel.
The last time Towery, 49, practiced law, from 1994 to 1998, was with McKenna. He was also at that time a Republican legislator at the state Capitol. After leaving, he said, he’s largely avoided practicing law because he didn’t have malpractice insurance. His law license is active with the Georgia Bar Association.
Towery, an alumnus of England’s Cambridge University, earned a law degree from Stetson University in Florida.
More recently, he’s made a name for himself as book author, political analyst and the head of a polling company he leads with former CNN executive Eason Jordan.
He was a strategist for Georgia Republicans such as former US Senator Mack “One-Term Wonder” Mattingly and former House Speaker Newt “Contract on America” Gingrich.
Towery will practice with the government affairs group, led by Eric Tanenblatt, the one-time chief of staff to Georgia’s Republican governor, Sonny “Pray for Rain” Perdue.
