Polsinelli Expands Public Policy Practice with Washington, D.C. Health Care Lobbyist

National law firm Polsinelli has bolstered its Public Policy practice with the addition of healthcare lobbyist Tim Casey, who joins the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.

As policy advisor, Casey brings valuable House and Senate experience to Polsinelli and a record of success in advancing the federal priorities of national associations, corporations, consumer groups, and nonprofit organizations. During his tenure with the American Nurses Association and American Occupational Therapy Association, Casey led efforts to help protect access to critical services under Medicare and Medicaid for vulnerable populations, ensure appropriate recognition and reimbursement for providers across settings, and preserve federal funding for workforce programs and research and more.

“Organizations are grappling today with how to keep up with what’s in the headlines while still making progress on their core issues,” Casey said. “Clients need an advocate who recognizes that dynamic and can work closely with them to engage lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to advance their priorities.”

Polsinelli’s bipartisan Public Policy practice is comprised of former members of Congress, executive branch officials, lawyers and lobbyists who work to advise clients on appropriations, budget, health care, education, immigration, tax policy and media law, among others. The national practice represents a diverse range of clients that include Fortune 500 corporations, national broadcast and cable networks, food manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, national construction firms, along with businesses and executives who need guidance in antitrust, white collar crime and regulatory litigation.

“Tim brings valuable lobbying experience and has established strong relationships in many areas of public policy which will be beneficial to our clients across various industries,” said Public Policy Practice Chair Alan Wheat. “He will be a great resource for our public policy needs in Washington, and across the country, for health care, technology, education and many other industries.”

Casey previously served as vice president of a government relations firm where he executed advocacy efforts on behalf of health care providers, hospitals, long-term care facilities, technology companies, educational institutions, and public health organizations. He formerly managed a broad portfolio of critical domestic policy issues for Senator Tom Carper of Delaware, and Representative John Tierney of Massachusetts, which included the Congressman’s priorities on the Education and Workforce Committee.

Casey earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from The George Washington University.
