Becker, a multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists, and other professionals at offices throughout the East Coast, announced its representation of the City of Alexandria, Virginia. The City, located just seven miles from downtown Washington, D.C., has a population of approximately 160,000, is a culturally diverse, historic city, and is home to many professionals who work for, or provide services to, the federal government.
Becker’s Government Relations team will be led by federal lobbyists Anthony Bedell, Amanda Wood, and Omar Franco, who will provide a proactive government affairs effort at the Federal level on behalf of the City of Alexandria. The Federal Lobbying team has a growing portfolio of clients in the Commonwealth, including The Virginia Port Authority, City of Virginia Beach, Norfolk Airport Authority, Virginia Union University, and Transurban.
Mr. Franco remarked, “We are excited to be working with such a historic city with close ties to the nation’s capital. Alexandria is a diverse community facing complex challenges. We are excited to provide our counsel and expertise to the City and promote its interests at the Federal level. In addition, this is an opportunity to expand our client service further into Virginia.”
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.
Becker’s Federal Lobbying 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 and a portfolio of public and private clients throughout the United States.
