Alexander & Cleaver Reloads With New Government Relations Team

For three decades, Alexander & Cleaver has been a leader in Maryland’s lobbying corps, known for its long-term success on behalf of a roster of loyal clients and its prime location on State Circle in Annapolis.

"Representation with Integrity - Alexander and Cleaver..” #Better&Stronger

As the firm enters decade four, it is bringing new energy to its government affairs team – with high-profile additions from the Hogan Administration and statewide reach from the Maryland Association of Counties. They join a roster of Annapolis and county government stalwarts. Click For More

Alexander & Cleaver is proud to continue our 30-year tradition of exceptional advocacy for our clients, as we introduce our revamped government relations team. With fresh energy, we continue our tradition as a full-service firm providing outstanding legislative affairs service from the General Assembly to Prince George's County, the Baltimore region, Montgomery County, Western Maryland, and the Eastern Shore for procurement, strategic advice, and legal representation.

Davion Percy is entering his third year with A&C as a top lobbyist in Prince George’s County and he has expanded his reach to work on procurement and legislative issues throughout the state. Barbara Zektick joins our firm with statewide reach as former Associate Director of Legislative Affairs and Policy Team for the Maryland Association of Counties and her outstanding legal experience in the local government. Emily Tocknell and Richard Reinhardt add executive branch experience, joining from Governor Hogan’s Commerce Department and Department of Labor Licensing and Regulation, respectively. Both have substantial experience lobbying the General Assembly and the Executive Branch, with Reinhardt having also served as Director of Government Affairs for the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.

Robin Shaivitz has returned as a consultant to the firm and our clients; Lyle Fowlkes is also back with the firm ready to work her “magic” for our procurement clients; and, of course, former House Speaker Cas Taylor and firm co-founder Gary Alexander will continue their supporting roles to our Team and our clients.
