Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse Securities has invested in BGR Government Affairs for DC support on legislative and regulatory matters.

BGR's team includes Jonathan Mantz, national finance director of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential run; Andy Lewin, who was assistant VP at Zurich Financial for government/industry affairs; Matt Hoffman, legislative director for former House Speaker Paul Ryan; and Dan Murphy, director on the Trump presidential transition team and ex-chief of staff to former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Mel Martinez.

The Washington-based firm of Republican powerhouse Haley Barbour will also counsel Credit Suisse Securities on financial and tax issues.

Credit Suisse Securities is among the lead underwriters of Lyft's hotly anticipated IPO and helped manage this month's public offering by Cushman & Wakefield commercial real estate giant.
