– Former Arizona Congressman Ben Quayle has joined Clark Hill PLC’s Phoenix and Washington DC offices, as a Senior Director in the firm’s Government and Public Affairs Group, Clark Hill Government and Public Affairs Practice Group Leader Charlie Spies announced today. Quayle was previously a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Arizona’s third Congressional District. Quayle joins as part of the firm’s commitment to growing their national Government and Public Affairs group.
“Ben has a great vantage point as a business owner, public servant and attorney,” Spies said. “His experience, commitment to public service, and understanding of how politics and the governmental regulatory process impact entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes are a huge asset to our team.”
While in Congress, Quayle was a member of the Committee on the Judiciary, and Vice-Chair of the Subcommittee on Intellectual Property.
