The Livingston Group, which is headed by former House Speaker-designate Bob Livingston has signed a one-year contract worth $500K to represent Iraq.

The firm will conduct outreach to the White House and Congress to boost Iraq's ties with the US.

It also will engage with US multinational companies, think tanks, policy institutes as well as Iraq’s diaspora on behalf of the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Livingston, his former chief of staff J. Allen Martin, and Cathyrn Kingsbury, a former consultant at The Solomon Group, handle the Iraqi business.

They report to Iraq’s US ambassador H.E. Fareed Yasseen.

TLG had represented Iraq from December 2017 until March 24, 2021, before re-upping on December 22.
