WASHINGTON, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Troutman Sanders Public Affairs Group (TSPAG), an accomplished, bi-partisan governmental affairs firm on Capitol Hill and across the country, has changed its name to Troutman Sanders Strategies. The D.C. office has a proven track record of success with agribusiness, appropriations, trade, energy, environment and transportation issues among others.
"The name change reflects the firm's substantial growth since its founding in 2002 and its expanding business and geographic presence," said Pete Robinson, Chairman of Troutman Sanders Strategies.
"We've chosen a name that better defines a national firm that impacts government through advocacy," said Rob Leebern, who leads the Washington office. He noted that Troutman Sanders Strategies has grown from a single office into a comprehensive, bi-partisan, national-issue management firm with offices in Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Richmond, with more than 20 federal and state lobbyists.
Troutman Sanders Public Affairs Group was founded six years ago by Troutman Sanders LLP, a 111-year-old international law firm with more than 650 attorneys and 12 offices in North America, Europe and Asia. In addition, Troutman Sanders LLP recently announced it will merge with Ross, Dixon & Bell LLP, a 100-lawyer firm with offices in Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Diego and Orange County, California.
The rapid growth of Troutman Sanders Strategies has been partially fueled by the acquisition of veteran, top-notch talent and practices. Robinson said the firm's lobbyists are executing on everything from Capitol Hill's major federal legislation battles to state procurement issues, coalition building and grasstops advocacy, while also leading the way in public-private partnership initiatives. This has helped the firm develop into a "truly full-service practice."
