Thompson Hine has a little Captain in it.
The firm on Thursday revealed to Congress that it is lobbying for a subsidiary of London-based Diageo Plc, seller of Captain Morgan rum, Johnnie Walker Scotch whisky, Smirnoff vodka, Tanqueray gin and Guinness beer, among other alcoholic beverages. Thompson is focusing on "[m]arket access and related issues" for Norwalk, Conn.-based Diageo North America Inc., according to a lobbying registration report.
David Christy Jr., a Thompson partner, is handling the account. He didn’t have an immediate comment.
