Public Strategies Washington and Capitol Hill Strategies announce merger

WASHINGTON— Public Strategies Washington, Inc. (PSW) and Capitol Hill Strategies today announced a merger of the firms, bringing together two boutique government relations firms known for their years of personalized service to clients. Chuck Brain and A.J. Wojciak, partners at Capitol Hill Strategies, will join PSW as principals.

“We are fortunate to add Chuck and A.J.’s talents and experience to our team,” said Patrick O’Neill, Managing Partner at PSW. “Their strategic counsel, policy expertise, and relationships on the Hill will substantially deepen our existing capabilities, while bolstering PSW’S reputation as one of the premier Democratic firms in town.”

Brain is widely recognized as one of the most capable legislative affairs practitioners in Washington. Prior to founding Capitol Hill Strategies in 2003, he held several high-level positions in the White House and on Capitol Hill. As Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs, Brain served President Bill Clinton and led the development and implementation of the President’s legislative agenda on the Hill. Previously, he served as Deputy Chief of Staff to the House Committee on Ways and Means, a committee with wide-ranging jurisdiction.

Wojciak joined Capitol Hill Strategies as a partner in 2008, focusing on a variety of issue areas, including health care, tax, trade, financial services, insurance, and retirement services. Previously, Wojciak served as a senior legislative assistant to Congressman Earl Pomeroy (D-ND), and later worked in-house for the BlueCross BlueShield Association. Wojciak also served as a Special Assistant at the U.S. Department of the Interior during the Clinton Administration.

“Tax policy, trade, and healthcare are always hot button issues on Capitol Hill, and next year will be no exception,” Brain noted. “This PSW-CHS merger will provide all of our clients with significant, additional resources on these and other important issues before Congress. We’re eager to get to work.”
