Duane Morris law firm expands lobbying subsidiary
Philadelphia-based law firm Duane Morris this morning announced an acquisition that will expand its lobbying business in Harrisburg and elsewhere.
The firm is absorbing Pittsburgh-based GSP Consulting Corp. into Duane Morris Government Affairs, its lobbying and public relations subsidiary, Duane Morris said in a news release.
The combined enterprise will launch Jan. 1 as Duane Morris Government Strategies, with nine offices in five states and Washington, D.C., the company said.
In Harrisburg, Duane Morris Government Affairs has quarters at 305 N. Front St., while GSP Consulting is at 300 N. Second St. The firms' offices will combine in such cases, though details are pending, Duane Morris spokeswoman Kristen Levenick said.
GSP Consulting was formed in 2001 and advocates for clients on policy, legislative appropriations, grants and public funding for real estate development.
Duane Morris has more than 700 attorneys in practice in the U.S., London, Vietnam and Singapore.
