Hartford lobbying firms plan to merge

Hartford lobbying firms Capitol Consulting LLC and Schepker & Associates LLC, say they have agreed to affiliate and eventually merge under one name.

Terms of the deal, which became effective Tuesday, were not disclosed.

Under the agreement, Capitol Consulting, ranked a top 10 firm by the Hartford Business Journal, and Schepker & Associates will continue to operate under their separate companies with both firms eventually integrating all operations and ownership under Capitol Consulting LLC.

Schepker & Associates opened its lobbying practice in 2000.

The merger is intended to benefit client relationships through a pooling of key personnel and certain back-office support systems and staff, said Michael Dugan, founder and president of Capitol Consulting. He called the development "a natural fit."

Over the past nine years Capitol Consulting has represented over 40 clients such as: Accenture, Tesla, StubHub, and others, emergency physicians, nurse anesthetists, physical therapist, the billboard industry and several non-profit organizations. Schepker & Associates represents clients in the healthcare, insurance auto glass, healthcare and other sectors.
