Butler Snow is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with Linda M. Maynor, William F. Stiers and Wade H. Heck of Maynor & Stiers, LLC for federal government relations. Maynor, Stiers and Heck are registered Washington D.C. based lobbyists who represent clients on legislative and governmental matters on Capitol Hill.
With locations in Huntsville, Ala. and Washington, D.C. they work with members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives, representing clients on matters with the Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community, NASA, Homeland Security and Department of State.
“This announcement fits perfectly with our expansion into the Huntsville market and our recent addition of Garrett Jemison who also focuses his practice on the federal level,” said Christopher R. Maddux, chair, Butler Snow. “This will add additional bench strength to our team and greatly benefit our clients.”
Maynor serves as the managing partner for Maynor & Stiers, LLC. She built her practice over the past three decades during her tenure with two large law firms. She specializes in defense, aerospace, and technology matters, and maintains a national security clearance. Linda has strong working relationships with decision-makers in the legislative and executive branches of the federal government. She served as President George W. Bush’s representative abroad, has been elected as a delegate to the Republican National Convention and served on the GOP platform committee. Linda has also served on the board of the United Services Organization (USO), the non-profit organization that serves America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home, and country.
Stiers, also a partner of Maynor & Stiers, LLC, worked as a Legislative Director for two U.S. Representatives on the House Armed Services Committee, as a political director for a large public relations firm, and as a managing director of the Washington, D.C. office for two large Southeastern law firms.
Heck’s 35-year history on Capitol Hill includes: professional staff member for the House Armed Services Committee; Chief of Staff for a U.S. Representative on the House Armed Services and Intelligence committees; government relations director for a nuclear components manufacturer to support the Department of Defense and National Aeronautics & Space Administration; and, a government relations professional for two large Southeastern law firms.
