Minneapolis, MN – December 21, 2010.
Minneapolis-based law firm Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., is expanding their Legislative & Regulatory practice group in time for the 2011 Minnesota legislative session. Tom Hanson
joins the group and brings with him a thorough knowledge of legislative and regulatory law in Minnesota.
Rooted in Minnesota, but having a national perspective, the firm’s legislative and regulatory practice group offers a comprehensive range of unique services. They routinely represent clients before the Minnesota Legislature, as well as Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, Department of Commerce, Department of Transportation, Department of Revenue, Environmental Quality Board, and Pollution Control Agency.
With massive changes in both the Minnesota Senate and the House of Representatives, Mr. Hanson’s arrival is well timed. His former position as the Commissioner of Minnesota Management and Budget gives him a broad-based knowledge of the Minnesota political, legislative, and regulatory, landscape. Respected on a bipartisan basis, he is an effective advocate who is known for explaining complicated items clearly and effectively to both colleagues and the media. He held the position of Commissioner from December of 2006 until earlier this month when he joined Winthrop & Weinstine. Tom also worked as Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Tom Pawlenty.
