Lamond, Rosenberg Listed as Top Lobbyists for 2019

For the second year in a row, TRP founding partners Chris Lamond and Andy Rosenberg were selected for The Hill's list of Top Lobbyists for 2019. As the authors astutely point out, 2019 saw a number of  high-profile fights on key legislative and regulatory issues, noting that this select group of individuals have demonstrated their ability to wield clout and knowledge most effectively in a difficult landscape. This highly-respected list represents an elite group of policy experts and influencers who stand out for delivering results to their clients here in Washington, DC. "…The people below are all at the top of their game — and the ones the nation’s biggest companies, labor unions and associations turn to when they want their voices heard in the nation’s capital."

The Hill's entire list list for 2019 can be read below. 

2019 was a frenetic year for K Street, with a number of high-profile fights on legislative and regulatory issues, even as Washington was riveted by impeachment drama and a contentious 2020 presidential election took shape.

In a busy and testing year for the influence world, these are the people who wielded their clout and knowledge most effectively on behalf of their clients.

Not all of those honored on this list are formally registered as lobbyists. The list highlights the broad range of talents needed to succeed in the influence industry. But the people below are all at the top of their game — and the ones the nation’s biggest companies, labor unions and associations turn to when they want their voices heard in the nation’s capital.

The ranks of Washington’s policy experts and influencers run deep, but these are the players who stand out for delivering results for their clients in the halls of Congress and the administration.
