U.S. Senator from Minnesota. Mayor of Saint Paul, Minnesota. Chief Prosecutor and Solicitor General. Senator Norm Coleman was a public servant for three decades before joining us as of counsel in 2011 where he heads our Government Relations and Policy Advocacy Practice Group. Working together to get things done has been his motto throughout his career and is certainly how he operates in the collaborative environment at Hogan Lovells. It also applies to how he works with former colleagues on both sides of the political aisle.

Whether it is on Capitol Hill, in corporate boardrooms, or in foreign consulates, Senator Coleman utilizes his relationships and experiences at the highest levels of the political process to help our clients. He has the unique ability to quickly dissect issues and frame solutions to challenges, all with his characteristic warm manner. Senator Coleman is a sought-after champion for clients looking to navigate the complexities of the Washington political and regulatory process.

Senator Coleman's breadth of experience makes him a go-to person throughout the firm. From his service on the prestigious Senate Foreign Affairs Committee and as Chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, to his work as an urban mayor, to bringing the NHL back to Minnesota, Senator Coleman has a wide variety of skillsets he regularly puts to use for our clients.

The concept of service is close to Senator Coleman's heart; he is active in a variety of political organizations and nonprofits. An article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune profiling his "working the halls of power" in Washington, D.C. notes that he wields more clout today than he did when he was in office.

Senator Coleman maintains a presence in both our Minneapolis and Washington, D.C. offices.
