[From the Arizona Capitol Times]
ne of America’s top lobbying and law firms bided time for years while it waited for the perfect candidate to spearhead its expansion into Arizona.
The waiting ended when Marty Shultz announced his retirement.
Shultz will take over as head of the new Phoenix office of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck immediately after he retires from Pinnacle West at the end of December. The Denver-based lobbying and law firm plans to hire a team of attorneys to work with Shultz starting next year.
James said Brownstein hires people who have a passion for community involvement, a criterion Shultz will have no difficulty meeting. Shultz said he plans to continue chairing the Phoenix Community Alliance, Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap and the Discovery Triangle Development Corporation. He also will continue his involvement with Gov. Jan Brewer’s fledgling Arizona Commerce Authority.
Shultz’s work with the bioscience roadmap will dovetail with Brownstein’s work in the field. For example, the firm serves as outside general counsel for a project that will convert a former Air Force base in the Denver area into what James called one of the country’s leading bioscience campuses.
