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, Norfolk Airport Authority (NAA). The NAA is political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia and an independent autonomous agency of the City of Norfolk that oversees the operation of the Norfolk International Airport.
“The aviation industry is confronting complex challenges on several fronts, said Anthony Bedell, Senior Corporate & Government Relations Director in Becker’s Federal Lobbying Practice. “We’re honored that the Norfolk Airport Authority has entrusted Becker with their federal lobbying strategy.”
Becker Lobbyists Bedell and Clarence Williams will co-lead the representation of the NAA in Washington, DC. Becker will collaborate with Capital Results, a public affairs and business consulting firm, to address the NAA’s state lobbying needs. Capital Results Partner Rob Shinn will spearhead that effort in Richmond.
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, National Association of Waterfront Employers (NAWE), and Transurban as well as several others throughout the United States.
Becker, with headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is a multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists, and other professionals at offices throughout the East Coast. More information is available at beckerlawyers.com.
