McCarter & English is solidifying its move into lobbying practice, opening a small office near the state capitol.
The satellite, at 162 West State St., provides a base of operations for the firm’s government affairs practice, according to the attorney who leads it, Guillermo Artiles.
“The group really has grown in substance this last year,” said Artiles, who started at Newark-based McCarter as an associate in 2016 and later left for a year to work as a legal adviser to Gov. Phil Murphy. Artiles returned to the firm in January 2019 as a partner.
