Lawrence Bell, a top aide to Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock, will join Cornerstone Government Affairs on Feb. 15.

As Warnock’s chief of staff during his 2020 senatorial campaign, Bell helped chart his path to becoming the first Black US Senator from Georgia.

As deputy chief of staff to Senator Warnock, Bell led the transition team for setting up the new office and took on the role of policy and legislative advisor.

Bell is a former trustee and current member of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Warnock is senior pastor.

Prior to joining Warnock’s political team, Bell did a seven-year run at Troutman Sanders and exited as director of government and community affairs, and manager of external affairs, for the City of Atlanta.

Campbell Kaufman, Cornerstone managing director, said Bell’s relationships in Georgia and DC and understanding of the political landscapes in both places will be invaluable to current and future clients.
