Lobbyist J. Caleb Boggs III has left Blank Rome for King & Spalding, his new firm announced on Monday.
Boggs, the grandson of the late-Sen. J. Caleb Boggs (R-Del.), is a partner in King & Spalding's government advocacy and public policy practice, focusing on the financial services industry. He had been at Blank Rome since 1999, becoming a partner in 2003.
The lobbyist said he had good colleagues at Blank Rome, making it feel “like home.” But Boggs said he is also at home at King & Spalding.
“I moved for all of the right reasons and good reasons you move to a firm,” he said.
A former president of the Republican National Lawyers Association, Boggs in 2009 received from President George W. Bush a six-year appointment as U.S. representative to the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, a World Bank agency that works on settlements between countries and investors.
Prior to joining Blank Rome, Boggs was counsel to the Senate Banking and Governmental Affairs committees.
