Pat Casey, son of popular Pennsylvania Senator and Governor Bob Casey, has joined Dentons Global Advisors as a partner in its government relations unit.

The lawyer by training has more than 30 years of experience in commercial litigation, especially in areas involving labor, employment and healthcare issues.

He ran for Congress to represent northeastern Pennsylvania in 1998 but lost in a nailbiter to Republican Don Sherwood.

DGA also recruited from its parent company Dentons law firm. It named Michael Drobac, ex-government affairs chief at Netflix; and Gregory Walden, former chief counsel at the Federal Aviation Administration, partners.
