Government Relations Pro Randi F. Hutchinson Re-Joins Greenberg Traurig in D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 11, 2024 Randi F. Hutchinson has re-joined global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP as of counsel in its federal Government Law & Policy Practice, based in the Washington, D.C., office.

Hutchinson’s long bipartisan career includes serving in both chambers of Congress — as a state director in the Senate and a legislative director in the House. She also served in the executive branch in leadership positions and advocated for clients in private practice, including previously at Greenberg Traurig.

"Randi’s experience working with, and within, the highest levels of the U.S. government will be a terrific asset to our clients,” said Ernest LaMont Greer, co-president of Greenberg Traurig and chairman of the Washington, D.C., office. “We are thrilled to welcome her energetic and entrepreneurial spirit back as we continue to grow in D.C. and around the world."

She rejoins Greenberg Traurig after most recently serving as chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service, which provides infrastructure and infrastructure improvements such as water and waste treatment, electric power, and telecommunications services to rural communities.

Prior to that, she served as chief counsel at the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the lead federal government agency responsible for regulating and providing safety oversight of commercial motor vehicles such as large trucks and buses. Hutchinson also served as the immediate past-president of the Spouse’s Organization for the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress.

Hutchinson will draw on her experience to support clients from a variety of sectors — including agriculture, construction, education, health care, and transportation — as they navigate the opaque and fast-moving federal legislative landscape.

“Our D.C. office serves as a hub for the firm’s global client base seeking to navigate Washington,” said Pamela J. Marple, administrative shareholder for the Washington, D.C., office. “A government relations pro of Randi’s caliber will expand our ability to provide excellent services and results to clients across the board.”

"When considering the next move in my career, I always knew I wanted to rejoin Greenberg Traurig,” Hutchinson said. “I look forward to adding my broad experience and industry knowledge to the firm’s already deep bench of talented attorneys and government relations professionals."
