Bracewell & Giuliani LLP Announces Launch of the Policy Resolution Group

November 16, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. Bracewell & Giuliani LLP today announced the formation of the Policy Resolution Group (PRG), a separate business unit within the firm devoted to government relations and strategic communications. PRG provides counsel and services to a broad range of clients in the areas of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs, Political Analysis, Strategic Communications, and Legal Representation.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer this dynamic government relations practice within our firm structure while addressing the distinct needs of our clients and professionals in today’s market for advocacy services,” said Mark C. Evans, Bracewell & Giuliani LLP's managing partner. “Our new, flexible model enables us to best serve our clients and to attract the best and brightest attorney and non-attorney professionals in the business.”

“PRG’s work aims to bring clients in the U.S. and internationally from ‘Chaos to Clarity,’ utilizing the best policy experts, communications strategists and legal minds in the business to help clients successfully navigate the complex federal landscape,” said PRG Founder Scott Segal. “Our group’s unique structure offers the flexibility and creativity of a boutique lobby practice backed by the resources and deep bench strength of a major international law firm.”

PRG is comprised of 13 professionals, including PRG founding partners and current Bracewell practitioners Scott Segal, Ed Krenik, Frank Maisano, Dee Martin and Paul Nathanson, as well as firm partners Gene Godley and Michael Pate. PRG partners have a combined 150 plus years of experience in government relations, strategic communications and legal representation.

“This innovative platform provides clients with best-in-class advocacy services in Washington, DC,” said Evans. “The PRG model is based on the understanding that an effective 21st-century advocacy program requires a combination of government relations, strategic communications and legal representation, a mix of skills that many law firms have difficulty incorporating into a traditional law firm structure.”
