In 2021, after more than two decades advising elected officials, corporate leaders, and academics in Washington, D.C, Tom Quinn joined LSN Partners. Now, as Managing Partner of the Federal Practice, Tom focuses on federal affairs with specific knowledge of earmarks and appropriations. Tom brings his vast experience and expertise to LSN clients who need to navigate the often complex processes within the Executive and Legislative branches of government.
Tom began his career working for a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, and during his time on Capitol Hill Tom provided public policy advice in many areas ranging from national security to infrastructure while building successful public-private partnerships focused on regional economic development. Tom then worked for a prominent lobbying firm in Washington, DC, and amassed a diverse portfolio of clients.
Tom is well known and respected for his ability to solve complicated problems through the formulation and execution of successful federal advocacy and business development strategies, including positioning clients as both authorities on and recipients of significant federal awards to support national security programs, workforce development, basic and applied research, unmanned systems, and infectious disease research.
Tom also worked with a large, academic research-focused coalition with members spanning the U.S. to expand the organization’s reach in the nation’s capital and significantly increase their overall program funding.
A native of Oradell, New Jersey, Tom was educated in the Jesuit tradition at the College of the Holy Cross, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a concentration in Middle East Studies. Tom lives with his wife and son in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC.
