For businesses navigating the legislative process in Maryland, it is impossible to overstate the value of effective government relations. Recognizing this, Saul Ewing entered into a strategic alliance in December 2008 with the highly regarded Maryland lobbying firm of Harris Jones & Malone, LLC.
The alliance provides Saul Ewing's clients ready access to preeminent lobbying services from Lisa Harris Jones and Sean R. Malone, two individuals with strategic insight into the state and deep connections in government throughout central Maryland. Founded in 2000, Harris Jones & Malone has built excellent relationships with the Governor's Office, Maryland General Assembly, Baltimore City Mayor's Office and City Council and regularly represents clients on a variety of matters before Baltimore County, Howard County and Anne Arundel County legislators and agencies.
Harris Jones has a stellar reputation for effecting change through the legislative process. In her early years in practice, Harris Jones worked with several high-profile law firms in the Baltimore area, developing a strong background in Baltimore City and state government process. Throughout her 16 years of government relations experience, Harris Jones has built strong professional relationships and many lasting friendships with legislators, staff and agency representatives across the state.
Malone was a longtime advisor to Gov. Martin O'Malley, having managed his re-election campaign for Baltimore City Council and served on his cabinet during O'Malley's tenure as Mayor of Baltimore. Before partnering with Harris Jones, Malone was the governor's Deputy Legislative Officer, advocating for the Governor's legislative agenda. Like his colleague, Malone's years as a political insider have allowed him to foster important government connections throughout Maryland.
Saul Ewing clients receive regular updates from Harris Jones & Malone on legislation before the General Assembly, along with thoughtful analysis of how new and amended laws will impact the State of Maryland for years to come.
