Blank Rome Government Relations has disclosed that it is lobbying for Motorola Solutions Inc.
The lobby shop is advocating for the Schaumburg, Ill.-based telecommunications company on "[i]ssues related to public safety/D block spectrum; issues related to cybersecurity; issues related to tax reform legislation," according to lobbying registration paperwork the firm filed with Congress on Thursday. Blank Rome principals Kristi Remington, Malloy McDaniel and Shimon Stein, as well as firm member Pete Giambastiani, are handling the account.
Remington, who served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the U.S. Justice Department Office of Legal Policy during the George W. Bush administration, directed a request for comment to Motorola Solutions. Company spokesman Tom McMahon declined to comment on Blank Rome's work beyond what the firm wrote in its filing.
With the dissolution of Motorola, Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility emerged as separate companies. Motorola Solutions focuses on corporate and government customers, providing them with services and products, including two-way radios, bar code scanners and network support. Motorola Mobility, which is owned by Google Inc., handles cellular phones.
