After many years of Senator Chuck Schumer being a fixture in New York politics, as a leading New York lobbying firm we’ve enjoyed watching him rise to the level of Leader of the Democratic Caucus and now to the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate! As New Yorkers we have been fortunate enough to work very closely with New York’s Senior Senator and his team on areas of concern important to all New Yorkers and to all Americans and our clients. His leadership has made a real difference so this isn’t just a great turn of events for New York, it is a great day for our country. We are therefore very pleased to congratulate him. Our Washington D.C. office stands ready to advocate for you with the Senate Majority office of the Honorable Charles Schumer!
