Randal Meyer Joins MWC’s Federal Public Affairs Team, Unique Skill Set Aligns with Client Expectations
Randal J. Meyer has joined McGuireWoods Consulting as senior vice president in the firm’s federal public affairs team in Washington, D.C. He advises clients on a comprehensive approach to legal, policy, and political matters related to technology, emerging markets, and highly regulated industries.
Meyer most recently worked in BakerHostetler’s appellate and major motions practice group where he assisted on cases involving political law. Before entering private practice, he served as legislative counsel in the U.S. Senate where he prepared vote recommendations, formulated initiatives, crafted legislation, and devised political strategy with respect to judiciary, telecommunications, internet and technology, and economic development issues.
“Randal’s litigation experience combined with his ability to navigate regulatory and legislative issues creatively will serve our clients well,” said Paul Reagan, senior vice president and acting director of McGuireWoods Consulting’s federal public affairs team. “Businesses in rapidly evolving and highly regulated industries understand the importance of having an influential voice before federal legislators and regulators, and Randal’s unique skill set aligns with this expectation.”
Gov. Jim Hodges, president of McGuireWoods Consulting, echoes Reagan. “Randal is a talented lawyer and consultant who has built a great reputation as a problem solver during his short time in Washington. We are excited to have him as part of our team.”
Meyer has authored or co-authored over 60 opinion pieces and over a dozen briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court. A graduate of Brooklyn Law School (J.D.) and Binghamton University (B.A.), Meyer is admitted in Washington, D.C. and New York. He is also counsel at McGuireWoods LLP.
“McGuireWoods Consulting welcomes Randal and looks forward to leveraging his professional background and Capitol Hill experience to further support our clients’ business goals,” said Mark Bowles, chairman of McGuireWoods Consulting.
