New Jersey law firm opens Trenton lobbying office

Brach Eichler, a 90-attorney firm based in Roseland, NJ has launched a government affairs operation in Trenton with Rocco F. Iossa and Alan J. Steinberg. The two had been principals in State Street Partners, a Trenton lobbying firm which has ceased operations.

In a news release the law firm said that Brach Eichler Government Affairs, LLC. will serve clients across a broad base of business and industry, noting that the law firm "has particular expertise in the healthcare, environmental, transportation, real estate and pharmaceutical industries."

John D. Fanburg, managing member of Brach Eichler, said, “Every day in our law practice, we see where the law and politics intersect, and how regulations are increasingly shaping the business climate in New Jersey. We launched Brach Eichler Government Affairs as a natural extension of our law practice.
