The Hill's Top Lobbyists 2019 Recognizes Arnold & Porter's Top Notch Work for Clients

December 17, 2019

Arnold & Porter's Kevin O'Neill, Eugenia Pierson, and Dana Weekes were named to The Hill's "Top Lobbyists 2019: Hired Guns" list. The annual list compiles the lobbyists "who wielded their clout and knowledge most effectively on behalf of their clients." While there are more than 11,000 registered lobbyists in Washington, DC, The Hill only recognizes approximately 200 lobbyists who work for law firms and lobby shops.

Kevin O'Neill, who co-heads the firm's Legislative and Public Policy practice, has been named to the list seven years in a row; Senior Health Policy Advisor Eugenia Pierson, who leads the group's work in healthcare and life sciences, has been named to the list five years in a row. Dana Weekes, who works on education, government contracts, technology, and food/agriculture policy issues, was recognized for the second year in a row. All of the firm's ranked lobbyists are significantly younger than the other ranked multi-lobbyist teams from top law firms. Arnold & Porter is one of only two law firms in Washington with two women on this list.
