In a move that strengthens an already-strong government affairs practice in the region, McCarter & English announced that it has hired Vin Mauro Jr., the longtime chief of staff for the Senate Democrats in Connecticut, as a Government Affairs Adviser.
Vin will work along side Guillermo Artiles, Chair of the Government Affairs Practice Group and former Associate Counsel to Governor Phil Murphy. “Nationally recognized as a powerbroker with deep knowledge of the workings of government, he also expands our mid-Atlantic footprint,” Guillermo said. “Vin has a track record of developing policy, high-level negotiations and reaching across political lines to achieve successful outcomes.”
He’ll also be working with Bill Palatucci, Partner and longtime New Jersey Republican National Committeeman. “Vin is a prominent power player with a well-deserved reputation for working on both sides of the aisle and skillfully resolving the most challenging personal and political differences with nuanced, effective negotiating,” Bill said. “Clients across industries and jurisdictions will benefit from Vin’s thoughtful leadership and invaluable counsel.”
Vin is eager to embark on his new journey and said that “The firm is truly a one-of-a-kind, well-established ‘one-stop shop’ for businesses at any stage of their development, able to advance their interests on the local, state, national or global level. I am excited to leverage my political capital to drive meaningful continued growth for McCarter and its clients.”
