Becker, a multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists, and other professionals at offices throughout the East Coast, announces that they will be providing comprehensive federal government relations and legislative liaison services on behalf of their newest client, National Association of Waterfront Employers (NAWE). NAWE is a Washington-based trade association whose member companies are privately owned stevedores, marine terminal operators, and public operating port authorities. Member companies do business at over 200 U.S. Ports on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, the Gulf of Mexico, the Great Lakes, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
Anthony Bedell, Senior Corporate and Government Relations Director of Becker’s Federal Lobbying Practice, stated, “Supporting NAWE’s mission to ensure the stability of U.S. international trade and commerce is particularly meaningful in a post-pandemic world; we are honored by their trust in our team.”
Omar Franco, Senior Director of Becker’s Federal Lobbying Practice continued: “Our team has been instrumental in helping many waterfront clients find and secure support for infrastructure projects and other investments that promote economic development, relieve congestion, and ensure safety and security in their area. We are grateful for the opportunity to put the full force of this team’s expertise to work for NAWE, and look forward to advocating for them in Washington.”
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, including veteran DC lobbyists and former high-level Hill staffers, and senior Administration officials with deep experience in securing federal grants. The team has a portfolio of public and private clients including The Virginia Port Authority, City of Virginia Beach, Virginia Union University, and Transurban as well as others throughout the United States.
