O'Neill, Pierson Named to The Hill's 'Top Lobbyists 2017: Hired Guns' List
Kevin O'Neill and Eugenia Pierson were named to The Hill's "Top Lobbyists 2017: Hired Guns" list. O'Neill, who co-heads the firm's Legislative and Public Policy practice, and Pierson, a Senior Health Policy Advisor, joined the firm in 2016. Since then, The Hill notes that "advocacy revenues are on pace to more than double over last year." In an industry with several thousand contract lobbyists, only approximately 130 are named each year to the "Top Lobbyists" list.
The firm is one of 11 top law firms with two or more lobbyists named to the list, and the duo of O'Neill and Pierson is significantly younger than the other multi-lobbyist teams from top law firms on the list. O'Neill has been named to the annual list five years in a row while Pierson is making her third straight appearance on the "Top Lobbyists" list.
