Two prominent Idaho lobbying firms are merging: Sullivan & Reberger is merging with Eiguren Public Policy, and the new firm, Sullivan Reberger Eiguren, will represent the clients of both firms. Sullivan & Reberger is Pat Sullivan and Phil Reberger, while Eiguren Public Policy is Roy Eiguren. “We were just at points in our lives which made some sense for us to do it,” said lobbyist Pat Sullivan. “Phil’s looking more toward slowing down a little bit and redirecting.” Eiguren said, “For me, it adds depth and a broader scope to my practice, because I’ve been a sole practitioner for five years.”
Added Eiguren, “It’s a relative comment, but we’ll be the largest lobbying firm in the state.” In addition to the three principals, the new firm likely will bring on another lobbyist, Sullivan said. The firm’s anticipating a busy legislative session. “I’ve got tax issues, environmental law issues, retail grocery issues, bail bond issues, budget issues,” Eiguren said.
Eiguren’s current clients include Amalgamated Sugar, American Ecology Corp., Exergy Development Group, Prison Health Services Inc. and Verizon Wireless, among others. Sullivan’s include AREVA Inc., Associated General Contractors of Idaho, Eli Lilly Corp. and Moneytree Inc., among others.
