As an experienced former member of Congress, Martin Frost draws on his varied experiences to help public policy clients achieve their goals.
In his 26 years of congressional experience, Congressman Frost served for eight years as a member of the House Democratic Leadership, spending four years as Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and four years as Chair of the House Democratic Caucus. As a result, he knows personally virtually every member of the current Democratic Leadership and most of the ranking Democrats on key House Committees. Additionally, nearly half of the current members of the U.S. Senate, both Democrats and Republicans, served with Congressman Frost in the House.
Congressman Frost’s greatest strengths lie in helping devise and execute strategy for dealing with complex legislative issues. In so doing, he draws on his years in leadership and his long-time service as a member of the House Rules Committee and his membership in the House Budget Committee. A member of Polsinelli’s Public Policy practice since 2006, Congressman Frost has devoted much of his time to issues dealing with energy, taxes, and transportation. He works closely with Republican members of the firm’s Public Policy Group to provide a comprehensive bipartisan approach to issues pending in Congress and draws on extensive contacts within the Obama Administration when executive branch action is required.
Additionally, Congressman Frost appears as a political commentator on cable news networks such as MSNBC, FOX, and Bloomberg and writes articles for publications such as POLITICO and The Hill. He was named a Board Chair of the National Endowment for Democracy in the spring of 2013 and serves as Co-Chair of the Circles program for The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
