Two lobbyists switch firms as General Assembly returns to Annapolis

Two longtime Annapolis lobbyists have switched firms just as the General Assembly readies to open its 90-day session.

American Joe Miedusiewski, a former state legislator who ran for governor in 1994, has joined Old Line Government Affairs, LLC, a subsidiary of the Baltimore law firm Nemphos Braue. He was joined by Brett S. Lininger, who will serve as an outside attorney for the firm.

Together, the lobbyists represented more than 30 clients in Annapolis while working for Semmes, Bowen & Semmes of Baltimore, according to the most recent list of lobbyist employers filed with the Maryland State Ethics Commission.

Miedusiewski previously was the chairman of the firm’s Government Affairs practice. Lininger was a principal and chairman of the Business Practice Group at Semmes, Bowen & Semmes in Baltimore.
