The past year has seen Counsel’s federal practice continue its emergence as one of the most active and respected lobby teams in Ottawa. In recognition of outstanding work as experienced government relations advisors, we are pleased to announce Ben Parsons’ promotion to Associate Vice President, Federal Advocacy, and Bridget Howe’s promotion to Account Director, Federal Advocacy.
Bridget Howe joined Counsel in 2020 and is now leading client work to drive change in health care, pharmaceuticals, cultural industries, gender equality, and COVID-19 policy.
We look forward to Ben and Bridget‘s continued contributions towards the adoption of well-informed public policy on behalf of our clients as they move into their new roles.
We are also pleased to welcome Laila Hawrylyshyn to Counsel, who will support clients in Ottawa and across the country as a Senior Consultant.
Laila brings to the team a wealth of experience in political communications and passion for public policy including diversity and inclusion, health, transportation, and Latin American affairs.
“Counsel’s federal team has earned a well-deserved reputation for delivering results in multiple policy areas,” said Sheamus Murphy, Counsel’s Partner for Federal Advocacy. “I am thrilled to recognize Ben and Bridget’s leadership in their respective areas of expertise, and to welcome Laila onto our growing team.”
