Former Louisiana Democratic Senator John Breaux and former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., join the firm’s Washington office as special senior counsel with their sons, John Breaux, Jr. and Chester Trent Lott, Jr.; three public policy advisers; and three staff members.
The acquisition signals an aggressive growth plan for Patton Boggs as it continues to maintain its top spot in legislative work while expanding its footprint in major regulatory areas. Combining these two highly recognizable public policy firms will lead the firm in their strategic initiative of having bipartisan leadership to solve client problems at a time when it has never been more difficult to navigate Congress.
“This acquisition is a strategic coup and a cornerstone for our bipartisan growth,” said Thomas Hale Boggs Jr., chairman of Patton Boggs.
