Tonkon Torp Government Relations Practice Adds Lawyer

July 21, 2014
Rocky Dallum has joined the highly regarded Government Relations and Public Policy practice group at Tonkon Torp.
Dallum, who previously worked in Oregon politics, returns to his roots with a business law degree and nearly five years of experience as in-house counsel at a large, public manufacturing company in Idaho. There, he advised business clients on general corporate matters, labor and employment law, and mergers and acquisitions.
“Like the other lawyers in our government relations practice, Rocky brings a combination of business law and Oregon political experience that really benefits our clients,” said Drew Hagedorn, chair of the state practice group. “With the addition of Rocky to our practice, we’ve expanded our resources and capabilities in state legislative lobbying and public affairs work.”
Dallum is a graduate of Linfield College and Willamette University College of Law. Prior to attending law school, he served as a legislative director, campaign manager and outreach director for organizations in Oregon and Idaho. He has advocated for both large and small non-profits, advancing their public policy agendas at the state and federal level.
Tonkon Torp’s government relations and public policy professionals deliver bipartisan local, state and national lobbying services with unique access to Oregon’s political infrastructure. Attorneys in the practice group have well established relationships with Oregon legislators and state agencies as well as Oregon’s Congressional delegation.
