For the past ten years, Mr. Shaw has successfully represented a diverse group of Fortune 500 companies, major international trade associations, State and local governments, and other industry leaders on matters pending before the legislative and executive branches of government. He has provided numerous clients critical strategic advice, and has created and implemented comprehensive legislative and grassroots action plans for working both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Mr. Shaw’s extensive experience includes specialized work affecting key industries such as telecommunications, energy, automotive, technology, financial services, and those requiring the protection of intellectual property rights, as well as other leading industries. His keen understanding of both policy and politics has earned Mr. Shaw the distinction of being one of Washington’s top consultants. He is known as having “’inner circle status on a host of issues”, having been recognized repeatedly in trade journals as one of the Hill’s elite consultants and one of the few figures who can work across the Hill and across the aisle.

He worked at length on the development and passage of The Telecommunications Act of 1996, the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the Satellite Home Viewer Act, the Federal Power Act, the Clean Air Act, as well as other laws affecting privacy, e-commerce, cyber-security, data security, broadband deployment, television programming, air quality standards, electricity policy, automotive safety and fuel economy, and many others.
