Firm Opens D.C. Office to Focus on Postal Issues

A laundry list of problems at the U.S. Postal Service means more business for K Street and the law firm Ford & Huff is now jumping onto the gravy train.

The corporate law firm is opening a Washington D.C. office that will focus on postal affairs, the firm announced Thursday. Hal Hughes, a former USPS general counsel, will join postal experts Bob Brinkmann and Art Sackler, formerly of the Coalition for a 21st Century Postal Service, at the practice. 

Despite the service's financial troubles, including reaching a $15 billion borrowing limit after defaulting on two multi-billion dollar payments this year, Sackler said in a statement the USPS "remains a huge and indispensable institution, on which a $1 trillion industry depends."

The three are looking forward to helping the industry "navigate legal and public policy challenges at the Postal Service, the Postal Regulatory Commission and on Capitol Hill," Sackler said.
