Will serve as President of the newly created McDonald Hopkins Government Strategies in DC.
(Washington, DC) - Former Ohio Congressman Steven LaTourette has a new job.
LaTourette, who recently retired after serving 18 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, will head a new subsidiary of McDonald Hopkins LLC, a business advisory and advocacy law firm with offices in Cleveland and several other cities.
LaTourette will serve as President of the newly created McDonald Hopkins Government Strategies with offices overlooking Capitol Hill. The office will provide strategic advice and assistance at the federal government level. LaTourette will team with his wife, Jennifer LaTourette, a Vice President at a major independent lobbying company for the past decade, who will serve as Vice President of McDonald Hopkins Government Strategies.
“This is a natural move for McDonald Hopkins, building upon our state-level advocacy practices, and is a great opportunity for us to work with Steve and Jennifer LaTourette,” said Carl J. Grassi, president of McDonald Hopkins
“I firmly believe in the moderate and constructive values that I represented in Congress and intend to continue representing those values on behalf of clients whose interests are impacted by the actions of our government,” LaTourette says. “Opening a Washington office for McDonald Hopkins appeals to the entrepreneurial spirit that Jennifer and I share.”
Prior to his election to the House of Representatives, LaTourette served from 1989 to 1995 as the Lake County Prosecutor. In 1990, he was named Prosecuting Attorney of the Year in Ohio for his successful prosecution of 13 members of a murderous religious cult. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Cleveland Marshall College of Law.
