(TUCSON, Ariz.) --- In an effort to more efficiently service its growing book of business in the Golden State, the Tucson-based Russell Public Affairs Group today announced the opening of an office in Los Angeles. Marc Colen, a veteran lawyer and policy consultant with more than 20 years of experience, was tapped to head up the firm’s west coast operations.
“Few can deny that the nation’s leading market trends were first inspired on the coasts,” stated Matt Russell, President of the Russell Public Affairs Group. “This new office will position our current and future clients and their innovative ideas on the launch pad of tomorrow’s trends, providing a pathway to the kind of public opinion that our firm’s principals have engineered for years,” he continued. The Russell Public Affairs Group has represented clients in California for more than two years. According to Russell, the new office will “respond to the account service barriers that e-mail and FedEx just don’t clear.”
Marc Colen, Vice President of the Russell Public Affairs Group, brings to the firm in-depth knowledge of intellectual property protection and litigation, as well as serving as a media consultant primarily in the areas of national security and biotechnology. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of California Los Angeles, and his J.D. from Loyola Law School.
The new office is located at 20300 Ventura Boulevard, Suite 120, in Woodland Hills, within a half hour of downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Studio City, and both the UCLA and USC. The telephone number is (818) 700-5212.
With offices in Tucson, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., the Russell Public Affairs
