    Nicholas W. Allard, chairman of the firm's public policy practice, was quoted in The Hill on November 5, 2008 in a story about how lobbyists will fare under President-elect Obama. Mr. Allard said that Obama’s insistence on keeping his administration lobbyist-free could do more harm than good by forcing him to rely on a staff inexperienced with Washington.

    “You don’t want only virgins and academics in your administration,” Mr. Allard said in a recent interview. Now more than ever, Mr. Allard told The Hill, people with expertise and experience — especially in banking and financial services — are needed.
