Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld has acquired Democratic boutique lobbying firm Parven Pomper Strategies, the firm said in a press release. PPS founders Scott Parven and Brian Pomper will join the firm as partners. Akin Gump also announced Al From, founder and longtime leader of the Democratic Leadership Council, will become a senior advisor at the firm.

Smith W. Davis, co-leader of Akin Gump’s policy practice, said the new team brings an “excellent track record of providing business clients with first-rate strategic advice and advocacy in the policy arena.”

Prior to founding PPS, Parven served as vice president and counsel at Aetna, where he oversaw international public policy. He is also a former vice president of public policy at AOL Time Warner and chair of the international policy group at Mayer Brown.
