September 7th, 2016

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – Browne George Ross announces the establishment of its first affiliated consulting group, Wilson Walsh George Ross (WWGR). WWGR is led by former California Governor and United States Senator Pete Wilson, and by Sean Walsh, senior policy advisor, cabinet member, and spokesman to U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and California Governors Pete Wilson and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

WWGR’s team has decades of experience helping individuals and companies bridge the gaps between business, law, and local, state, and federal governments. WWGR specializes in helping clients navigate and engage with the regulatory challenges their clients face at the federal, state, and local levels to proactively resolve issues and prevent problems. Drawing upon extensive experience and a track record of success, Wilson and Walsh develop and implement strategies that are uniquely tailored to clients’ legal, governmental, political, and media problems, and capitalize on opportunities these challenges often present.

“Browne George Ross is delighted that Governor Wilson and Sean Walsh have decided to join our firm and establish Wilson Walsh George Ross Consulting, “ said Eric George, a founding partner at Browne George Ross. “Governor Wilson has been engaged in public policy and worked with businesses extensively throughout his entire career. No one has more experience working at the intersection of government and the private sector than Governor Wilson. Sean Walsh has served two presidents and two governors, and has advised numerous government officials and executives in his more than thirty years of work in the public and private sectors. The consulting group will immediately assist our existing client base, as well as expand our business at the national and international level,” concluded George.

“Browne George Ross – which has been named one of the top ten litigation boutique firms in the country, and one of the top nine litigation boutique law firms in the state of California – offers an ideal environment for establishing a world-class consulting group. Under the entrepreneurial leadership of Eric George and Pete Ross, Browne George Ross is a perfect fit for Sean and me,” said Wilson.

Prior to joining Browne George Ross, Wilson and Walsh were principals in consulting groups at two of the nation’s largest law firms. They have served numerous national and multinational companies across nearly all areas of business, including the energy, oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, environmental, transportation, financial services, technology, healthcare, insurance, real estate, telecommunications, manufacturing, and media industries.

Wilson and Walsh are globally recognized as experts in their field and have been highlighted in the media for their expertise and called to testify and present in front of governmental bodies, business groups, trade associations, and the media.
