Speaker Emeritus of the California Assembly to join as partner
The former Speaker of the California Assembly is to join Mayer Brown Rowe & Maws government relations practice as a partner. Robert Hertzberg was twice elected Speaker of the Assembly and is currently Speaker Emeritus. He will join Mayer Browns Los Angeles office in December when his term of office ends.
