Islamabad, Pakistan: Pakistan Embassy in United States has signed a lobbying services contract with famous law firm Holland & Knight.
According to an official statement issued by the Foreign Office of Pakistan, leading Republican from New York, former Congressman Tom Reynolds (Thomas M. Reynolds), who represents Washington’s top lobbying firm Holland & Knight, called on the Foreign Minister at the Embassy.
On this occasion, a contract between Pakistan Embassy and Holland & Knight for provision of lobbying services to Pakistan was signed.
According to official website of Holland & Knight, the hallmark of Holland & Knight’s success has always been and continues to be legal work of the highest quality, performed by well-prepared lawyers who revere their profession and are devoted to their clients.
According to Wikipedia, Holland & Knight LLP is an international law firm with more than 1,300 lawyers and other professionals in 28 offices throughout the world. Holland & Knight provides representation in litigation, business, real estate and governmental law.
