About Thorn Run Partners:
Established in 2010, Thorn Run Partners is a leading government affairs firm whose members are Capitol Hill veterans with over a century’s experience in federal lobbying, government service and policy development.
Unique for its bipartisan composition and client-friendly size, Thorn Run was founded by former aide to Democratic Senator Edward M. Kennedy (MA), Andy Rosenberg, and former aide to Republican Senator Fred Thompson (TN), Chris Lamond.
Having spent decades at some of Washington’s most prestigious large-scale lobbying and law firms, Rosenberg and Lamond designed Thorn Run Partners to incorporate the professionalism of large firms with the strategy and tactical approaches of an elite, boutique-sized agency.
Active in both Democratic and Republican political circles, the team understands the legislative process – and the politics of the process – and possesses the relationships necessary to be effective advocates for clients before Congress and the Executive Branch.
