McDermott Will & Emery has taken up Tasers in Washington.
The firm is advocating for Taser International Inc. on regulatory and legislative matters concerning electronic control devices and related technology, as well as law enforcement information sharing, according to a lobbying registration report filed with Congress this week. McDermott partner Edward "Teddy" Eynon and professional advisers Mark Harkins and Erica Stocker are handling the account.
"We are helping Taser work with law enforcement agencies to increase the use of non-lethal control devices," Harkins said in a written statement. "In addition, we are helping introduce Taser's new video based systems that help lessen conflicts between law enforcement individuals and those suspected of breaking the law."
