WilmerHale Adds Former Congressional Aide Timothy Martin to Public Policy and Legislative Affairs Group

February 13, 2017

WilmerHale is pleased to announce that Timothy G. Martin, former Legislative Director for Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL), has joined the firm's dynamic Public Policy and Legislative Affairs (PPLA) Group. Martin focuses on transportation, financial services, natural resources and agriculture law, among other issues, and will help the firm's growing list of clients address their complex policy and regulatory challenges in the nation's capital.

“Tim will be a great addition to our PPLA group and he fits the bill perfectly—a substantive policy player with keen political acumen and reach into both the Legislative and Executive Branches,” said Partner Jonathan Yarowsky, co-chair of the PPLA Group.

“We're thrilled that Tim is joining our team,” said Partner Rob Lehman, co-chair of the PPLA group. “We're adding a senior GOP staffer with a set of skills and policy experience that will dovetail nicely with PPLA's current clients. His work on issues of interest to existing clients, especially in the areas of energy and environment, transportation, and agriculture will prove very useful and allow him to hit the ground running.”

“I'm excited to join WilmerHale,” Martin said. “I look forward to using my deep knowledge of and experience on Capitol Hill, especially within the House Republican Conference, to help the firm's clients. I can't wait to team up with the remarkably talented lawyers across the firm to help solve clients' problems.”

Before working for Rep. Davis, Martin was General Counsel and Senior Legislative Assistant to Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO). Martin received his law degree from New York Law School in 2011 and his BA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in 2005.
