Ros-Lehtinen joins Akin Gump

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Since finishing her time in office, education alumna Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has joined Akin Gump – one of Washington’s largest lobbying firms.

Ros-Lehtinen joins the firm, which has clients all around the world, as a senior advisor. 

“One of the things that attracted me to Akin Gump was its broad and established client base across Latin America,” said Ros-Lehtinen. “I look forward to working with many of the firm’s clients there, including in places such as Argentina, Colombia, Mexico and throughout Central America, to help address their public policy goals and challenges.”

Ros-Lehtinen is not allowed to formally lobby Congress for at least one year after leaving office; however, she is able to work on behalf of foreign governments after leaving office with no restrictions since she is not an executive branch official.
