The public and governmental affairs firm is announcing this week the hiring of lobbyist Duncan McFetridge and Adam Keigwin, chief of staff and political consultant to state Sen. Leland Yee.
McFetridge, who will serve as managing director alongside Mercury lobbyist Paul Bauer, previously worked as an attorney and contract lobbyist for Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP. He has also worked in the state Capitol and for former state Treasurer Phil Angelides.
Keigwin, a 10-year veteran of the Capitol, will join the firm as a senior vice president. He will focus on providing strategic advice and public affairs work for clients and will not be a registered lobbyist.
Mercury, led by former Assembly Speaker Fabian NÃºÃ±ez and former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Deputy Chief of Staff Adam Mendelsohn, has offices in California and throughout the East Coast.
