Lobbyist Ron Platt has left Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal for McGuireWoods Consulting.
Platt said Tuesday was his last day in the office at Sonnenschein, and he starts at McGuireWoods Consulting on Monday.
Platt said he will be joining old friends and former colleagues at McGuireWoods, including partner and McGuireWoods Consulting senior vice president Terry Haines, who he worked with at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney until both left in 2008.
He said he expects some clients to come with him, though he couldn't yet name them.
"There’s several clients that I brought to Sonnenschein and who are people I’ve worked with for a large number of years," Platt said. Platt's client list includes the National Center for Genome Resources and Automatic Data Processing, Inc.
Platt, who was senior managing director at Sonnenschein, said he will be a senior adviser at McGuireWoods Consulting.
Haines called Platt "one of the premier lobbyists in Washington. Bringing someone like him on permits us to really have a great base to expand our business."
Mike McNamara, the partner who chairs Sonnenschein's public law and policy strategies group, said via e-mail that "we have concluded our relationship with Ron Platt. We wish him well."
