Becker Lobbyists Excited to Begin Working with Newest Client – the Virginia Port Authority

Washington, DC, August 4, 2020 — Becker, a multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists, and other professionals at offices throughout the East Coast, announced that it will be providing comprehensive federal government relations and legislative liaison services on behalf of their newest client, the Virginia Port Authority (VPA) in support of their strategic expansion plan.

Becker’s Government Relations team will be led by long-time Virginians Anthony Bedell and Alfonso Lopez.

The VPA has experienced significant growth for almost two decades and is currently the third largest port on the East Coast of the United States. The VPA has made major investments in infrastructure and capacity with the expansion of primary cargo terminals, expanded capabilities of port facilities, and dredging to make Virginia one of the deepest seaports on the east coast of the United States.

Government Law and Lobbying has been a core practice for Becker since its founding in 1973. The firm’s team of lawyers and lobbyists includes several who have served in high-level government positions and distinguished themselves in the political and legislative arenas in state, local, and federal government.

The federal practice began in 2011 with the addition of two Capitol Hill Chiefs of Staff and the Legislative Director of a US Senator. The bipartisan powerhouse team quickly grew the practice to ten lobbyists, including Virginians Anthony Bedell, former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Congressional Affairs at the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Alfonso Lopez, a long-time Federal Relations professional who handled Congressional & Federal Relations for then-Governor Tim Kaine.
