Former Idaho Rep. LaRocco signs on with big D.C. lobbying firm

Washington, D.C. lobbying firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is touting its newest addition of "top tier talent to its growing government relations group," namely former Idaho Congressman Larry LaRocco. LaRocco, who previously had his own public affairs and lobbying firm, LaRocco & Associates, will be a policy director for the group with a focus on financial services and natural resources. When he represented Idaho's 1st Congressional District in Congress from 1991 to 1995, LaRocco, a Democrat, served on the financial services and natural resources committees. "Larry's experience as a member of Congress coupled with his deep relationships and extensive knowledge of Capitol Hill make him a significant addition to our firm," said Al Mottur, managing partner of the lobbying firm's Washington, D.C. office.

LaRocco called the move "a natural next step in my career" and said, "I look forward to working with the firm's experienced team of policy advisors on these constantly evolving and game-changing issues."  The Brownstein firm says it's "ranked among the fastest growing and top lobbying firms in Washington, D.C."; it was founded in 1968 and employs a "bipartisan team" of nearly 240 attorneys and legislative consultants that "works to secure the client's best interest in areas such as energy and environment, telecommunications and financial services."
