Law firm and lobbyists in DC tie-up

Jones Walker LLP and the TCH Group LLC announce strategic alliance.


Jones Walker announced that the national law firm has entered into a strategic alliance agreement with a Washington DC based government relations firm, TCH Group, LLC. Jones Walker is among the 120 largest law firms in the United States.

“Separate entities”

The agreement contemplates that both the TCH Group and Jones Walker will continue as separate entities and both firms will also pursue opportunities to provide enhanced capabilities to new and existing clients. In addition to this new strategic alliance with the TCH Group, Jones Walker will continue its longstanding strategic alliance with The Livingston Group. All three firms say they look forward to identifying strategic opportunities for collaboration. TCH Group, now in its 24th year, has a long track record of formulating and implementing bipartisan solutions for its clients, which include Fortune 500 corporations, associations, municipalities, universities, and non-profits. Jones Walker's federal government relations practice group, led by Chris Johnsen, addresses the legislative and regulatory issues of state, regional, national, and international scope that affect clients. The firm's attorneys and staff assist clients by monitoring state and federal legislative and executive activities; participating in regulatory agency administrative proceedings; and preparing, supporting, or opposing legislative initiatives on behalf of our clients. Jones Walker has substantial experience representing public and private entities across the nation and around the globe, ensuring their objectives are achieved in the southeastern United States and DC.

“Creative approach”

Bill Hines, managing partner of Jones Walker, said “We are pleased to create this alliance with the TCH Group. It allows us to bring enhanced offerings to our shared clients and also demonstrates our creative approach to client service.” Michael Tongour, founder of the firm and president & managing partner, said “We are excited to form this alliance with Jones Walker. We were attracted to the firm for a variety of reasons including its strong presence in southern states, its well-deserved reputation for integrity, and for the value it has provided its clients for over eighty years.”
