Florida’s outgoing top legal officer, former Attorney General Pam Bondi, is heading to Washington, D.C. to join a politically-connected lobbying firm, Ballard Partners.  The firm, started by lobbyist Brian Ballard in Florida, is closely tied to the Trump administration.

Bondi will chair the firm’s Corporate Regulatory Compliance practice, according to a Ballard Partners press release.

“The firm’s new national practice area will focus on serving Fortune 500 companies to implement best practices that proactively address public policy challenges such as human trafficking, opioid abuse and personal data privacy,” says the release from Ballard Partners, first posted by Politico Florida.

Republican Ashley Moody was elected to be Florida’s new Attorney General in November.
