Ford & Huff is opening a new office in Washington focused on a unique practice – postal affairs.
The practice is led by former U.S. Postal Service general counsel Harold Hughes, a senior attorney. Hughes is joined in Washington by new hires Robert Brinkman and Arthur Slacker.
"We're very excited about adding federal legislative and regulatory matters to our broad range of practice areas, and especially about starting with postal affairs," managing partner Adam Ford said in a written statement. "With Art and Bob joining Hal, we will have the deepest postal bench of any firm in the country."
