Baker Donelson Announces Strategic Alliance with Former Senior White House Advisor Lance B. Leggitt

Baker Donelson announces the formation of a strategic alliance with Leggitt Strategies. Led by Lance B. Leggitt, a former Senior White House Advisor for two Presidents and a seasoned strategic policy advisor with more than 25 years of public and private sector experience, Leggitt Strategies will work with Baker Donelson's Government Relations and Public Policy Group to provide strategic advisory services.

Mr. Leggitt served as a Senior White House Advisor for George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump. He also served as the Chief of Staff for Secretary Tom Price of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, counselor to a Virginia Governor, and an Assistant Attorney General in the Virginia Attorney General's Office.

Mr. Leggitt recently departed the Trump Administration, where he served as Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy. In this role, Mr. Leggitt advised President Trump on development and implementation of regulatory and legislative strategies covering more than ten cabinet secretaries and agencies including the Departments of Health and Human Services, Transportation, Labor, Education, Veterans Affairs, Agriculture, and the Small Business Administration. Mr. Leggitt regularly engaged these and other federal agencies as a part of his policy development and implementation responsibilities. He also worked closely with White House Legislative Affairs staff to develop strategies for advancing the Administration's policies in Congress.

Sheila P. Burke, chair of Baker Donelson's Government Relations and Public Policy Group, said, "We are so pleased we will have the benefit of Lance's wide-ranging experience, which we know will be of assistance to our clients. We look forward to welcoming Lance back to the Baker Donelson family."

"Baker Donelson is one of the premier government relations and public policy practices in Washington, D.C. It will be an honor to work alongside the bipartisan group in serving clients' policy goals," said Mr. Leggitt.

Baker Donelson provides clients with long term strategic counsel as well as day-to-day representation, helping to protect and advance clients' business through knowledge of federal policymaking and its consequences. The Firm's highly regarded team includes the members of the Government Relations and Public Policy Group, as well as the public policy advisory, The Daschle Group. The federal policy team is comprised of professionals who have served on both sides of the political aisle, in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, as well as in the White House and federal agencies.
