“Becker Adds Tim Scott’s Chief of Staff as Gov’t Consultant” — Law 360

Becker’s newest Senior Government Relations Consultant, Neri Martinez, recently told Law360 she chose to join Becker, in large part, because of the firm’s reputation of being a trusted source and having transparent leadership. Martinez said, “[Becker’s] corporate culture really inspires loyalty and nurtures growth, and that’s the kind of place where I like to be.”

Becker welcomed Martinez to its Government Law & Lobbying team this week. She most recently served as Chief of Staff for Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) in the 118th Congress and as Senator Scott’s Staff Director for the Senate Committee on Aging in the 117th Congress. Previously, she was a Department of Energy political appointee under both Secretary Rick Perry and Secretary Dan Brouillette as the Chief of Staff for the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity.

Omar Franco, chair of Becker’s Federal Lobbying Practice in Washington, D.C. said, “Neri’s deep bench of experience, long list of accomplishments and results, and diverse community engagement will be a great resource for our clients.”

Ranked in Bloomberg Government’s Top Performing Lobbying Firms Report for 2023, Becker’s Federal Lobbying Team includes Washington, D.C. and state capitol insiders, Capitol Hill veterans, former high-level administration officials and agency experts, and former in-house corporate lobbyists. The team is highly regarded by members of Congress, congressional and committee staff, state legislators, third-party trade and industry organizations, and executive branch personnel as effective advocates for their clients’ interests.
