A former congressman with Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough has stopped lobbying Congress for a small, disabled veteran-owned electronic systems and software engineering company based in Morgantown, W.Va.
The government advocacy work former Representative Ron Klink (D-Pa.) did for Azimuth Inc. ended on August 1, according to a lobbying termination report Nelson Mullins filed with Congress last week. Klink had handled the account with policy adviser Mick Nardelli since May 2011, congressional records show.
The duo lobbied for "[p]rocurement opportunities through [the Defense Department] and Department of Commerce relating to Integrated Bridge Systems," which are electronic workstations used to operate boats, according to quarterly lobbying reports submitted to Congress.
Nelson Mullins received $160,000 from Azimuth during the course of its lobbying for the company. Azimuth also has used Robison International to advocate for it. But the firm hasn't reported any lobbying work for Azimuth since last year.
