Holland & Knight Continues Growth of Technology Policy Team with Addition of Sean McGlynn
WASHINGTON (June 1, 2023) – Holland & Knight has strengthened its Public Policy & Regulation Group with the addition of Senior Policy Advisor Sean McGlynn in Washington, D.C. Mr. McGlynn previously was a government affairs advisor with K&L Gates. At Holland & Knight, he will work alongside his former K&L Gates colleagues, Partners Daniel Ritter and Paul Stimers and Senior Policy Advisor Dennis Potter, who joined the firm in March.
Mr. McGlynn advises a broad range of clients on federal funding, policy and government contract issues in the congressional budget and appropriations process. He focuses on national security, defense and emerging technology issues, but also has extensive experience with nondefense policy issues. Mr. McGlynn represents a number of clients in the commercial spaceflight and national security space launch industries, and has worked extensively on policy initiatives intended to strengthen the cybersecurity of small- and medium-sized manufacturers who are operating in the U.S. defense supply chain.
"Sean's vast experience with emerging technologies, space and cybersecurity issues is a perfect complement to our national security and defense industry strengths," said Rich Gold, leader of Holland & Knight's Public Policy & Regulation Group. "We are excited to have him join his former colleagues in our practice and look forward to the significant contributions they will make for our clients."
"I am thrilled to join a firm with such a strong reputation for its federal practice and a number of impressive individuals from the defense and intelligence communities," said Mr. McGlynn. "I look forward to rejoining my colleagues and collaborating with new colleagues and clients in the policy arena to further advance cutting-edge technologies and space exploration."
Mr. McGlynn earned a B.S. degree from Santa Clara University.
