One of New Jersey’s most politically influential law firms is expanding their Washington, D.C. office.
Scarinci Hollenbeck has announced the hiring of Teddy Eynon, a former deputy chief of staff to Rep. John Shadegg (R-Arizona), will head up the firm’s new government strategies practice and run their Washington office.
“Teddy is an experienced attorney and political strategist with a knack for successfully bridging the gap between politics and business,” Scarinci said. “He understands the ins and outs of public policy, government relations, as well as the impact that various laws, policies and regulations may have on your business.”
Scarinci, a longtime New Jersey political power player, appears to be positioning himself to grown his firm as a new Democratic administration is set to begin.
“I am thrilled to bring my skills and experience over to Scarinci Hollenbeck,” said Eynon, a veteran Washington lobbyist.. “The political landscape is constantly evolving, which presents a unique challenge for legal practitioners. However, throughout my career, I have only been inspired by this challenge and I look forward to aligning with the firm during this exciting new chapter.”
Some political trivia: Shadegg, a congressman from 1995 to 2011, is the son of the late Stephen Shadegg, a longtime Arizona GOP operative who managed Barry Goldwater’s upset victory against U.S. Senate Majority Leader Ernest McFarland in 1952. He helped Clifford Case win U.S. Senate races in New Jersey.
