Dentons Global Advisors Government Relations has signed on to provide DC representation for a trio of politicos from Colombia’s Hope Center Coalition.

That group includes Juan Manuel Galan, who is running for the presidency in the election slated for May.

Dentons will provide government affairs and PA advisory services for the politicians tied to a trip to Washington “to better understand the US political systems” for a $32,500 fee, according to its contract dated Feb. 1.

DGA partners John Russell and Sander Lurie handle the work.

Russell served as deputy to the chief of staff to House Speaker Denny Hastert and outreach director for Republican majority leader Tom DeLay.

Lurie was chief of staff for Democratic senators Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey.

Ed Reilly, who once headed FTI Consulting's strategic communications unit, helms DGA Government Relations.
