GrayRobinson continues to grow its roster, announcing this week that Rob Shave has joined the firm as its director of government affairs.
“Rob brings to the firm years of experience in a wide variety of public policy matters, including water policy, property rights, infrastructure and education-related issues,” said Dean Cannon, the firm’s executive vice president and chairman of government affairs, in a statement. “He’s an asset to our team and will be a strong advocate for our clients.”
A Florida State University graduate, Shave began his career in government as committee staff for the Florida House Environment and Natural Resources Council. In this role, Shave assisted in directing legislation to subcommittees on energy, agribusiness, environmental protection and conservation of state lands.
He also served as an analyst on Florida’s Taxation & Budget Reform Commission, and managed and consulted for many Florida political campaigns. Prior to joining GrayRobinson, Shave worked at Capitol Access, a Tallahassee-based lobbying firm.
Shave represents a broad range of public and private clients before Florida’s legislative and executive branches. He will practice in both GrayRobinson’s Tallahassee and Fort Myers offices.
