Former Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley, once viewed as a successor to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has joined the global public policy practice of Squire Patton Boggs.
Representing the Bronx and Queens, Crowley lost a shocker primary challenge launched by 28-year-old newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
As the No. 4 ranking Democrat, Crowley was senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee and chair of the House Democratic Caucus from 2017-2019.
First elected in 1999, Crowley called his Congressional service “an honor of a lifetime” and “looks forward to working on many of the same issues in this new role.”
Crowley joins SPG with another former Congressman, Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania.
Ex-Senators Trent Lott (R-MS) and John Breaux (D-LA) co-chair SPG's public policy practice.
