The Politico provides a look at Quinn Gillespie this morning.
Last year, Quinn Gillespie suffered the biggest downturn in its nine-year history, making about $1.6 million less than it made in 2007, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan group that tracks political money. And it lost two dozen clients, lobbying disclosures filed with the Senate showed.
The firm’s chairman, Jack Quinn, acknowledged the downturn but blamed the losses on economic and other forces rather than on poor service. And, he said, the firm has brought in new talent and remains one of Washington’s top-grossing lobbying shops.
