CAPITOL HILL POLICY GROUP SIGNS EIGHT: 

Capitol Hill Policy Group, a new lobbying shop started by two Dentons veterans, has signed eight new clients, including the American Chemistry Council. The firm, started by Todd Bertoson and Robert Odawi Porter, registered its first clients last month, bringing the total client list to nearly a dozen. All are former Dentons clients. “It’s a small lobbying shop really focusing on natural resources, transportation and tribal issues,” Bertoson told PI. Bertoson worked for the Senate Commerce Committee before joining Dentons, and Porter is a former president of the Seneca Nation of Indians. They’re looking to bring on one or two more staffers to build out the firm, Bertoson said.
