Attorney and lobbyist Drew Hagedorn has joined Tonkon Torp LLP as Of Counsel in the firm's expanding Government Relations and Public Policy group.

Hagedorn most recently was associated with the lobbying and public relations firm of Conkling Fiskum & McCormick, where he built a state and local government affairs practice serving both public and private sector clients including nonprofits and industry associations.

"We are delighted to add Drew's proven skills to our firm's government relations practice," said Mark Cushing, chair of the group. "He knows how to help clients achieve their objectives by strategically building working relationships with government officials."

Prior to joining CFM, Hagedorn served as legal and policy advisor to the Oregon Senate Majority Office and Senate President's Office. He also worked for U.S. Senator Mark Hatfield in Washington, D.C.

"We are fortunate to offer a growing cadre of seasoned government relations and public policy advisors," said Mike Morgan, Tonkon Torp's managing partner. "With business success often shaped by government action, our clients appreciate the firm's ability to work with all levels of government and integrate that work into our overall strategic legal advice."

A graduate of the University of Southern California, Hagedorn earned his J.D. in 1999 from Lewis & Clark Law School.
