WASHINGTON, D.C. – Bracewell LLP is pleased to announce that Anna Burhop has joined the firm’s nationally recognized Policy Resolution Group (PRG) as a principal in its Washington, D.C. office. Burhop will provide federal legislative and regulatory advice to the firm’s clients on a broad range of environmental, energy and other policy matters. PRG has been recognized as the top performing lobbying/law firm by Bloomberg Government and is the only firm to make the list four years in a row.
Burhop joins Bracewell from the American Chemistry Council (ACC) where she served as a Director of Regulatory and Technical Affairs providing support for the ACC’s environmental advocacy initiatives. Prior to joining the ACC, Burhop worked for seven years as a professional staff member on the Senate Committee on Environmental and Public Works, serving under both Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) and Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), and developing policy and oversight strategies on various Clean Air Act Initiatives as well as EPA rulemakings.
“Anna’s extensive experience working on environmental and regulatory issues both in the private sector and on Capitol Hill will be a great asset to Bracewell’s PRG team and our clients,” said Bracewell’s Managing Partner Gregory M. Bopp. “We’re pleased to welcome Anna to the firm.”
Burhop is the most recent strategic addition to Bracewell’s Washington, D.C. office in the last six months. In March, Robert J. Wagman, Jr. joined as a partner to help lead the firm’s government contracts practice. In early April, Hans P. Dyke joined as a partner adding transactional depth to the firm’s energy, electric power and midstream practices and shortly thereafter, Christine G. Wyman returned to the firm as senior counsel in PRG adding significant industry, legislative and regulatory expertise in energy and environmental policy. Most recently in July, David A. Super joined the firm to lead the Washington, D.C. civil litigation practice.
“Having worked with Anna for more than a decade while she was on Capitol Hill and at ACC, I know our clients will benefit from her knowledge of legislative and regulatory issues on a wide range of policy matters,” said PRG Co-Head Scott H. Segal.
Burhop also was an administrative director for a health and wellness community in Louisiana. She earned a Master of Health Administration in Health Systems Management from Tulane University and a B.A. from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.
“Bracewell’s PRG has an excellent reputation in Washington, D.C. and I’m very much looking forward to working with its team of accomplished lobbyists and strategic communications professionals,” said Burhop.
