Ken Cuccinelli to serve as Legal Expert & Policy Advisor for partners and clients
RALEIGH, N.C. – Kairos Government Affairs (KGA) announced today that former Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli will partner with the firm in an advisory role.
Cuccinelli, a longtime conservative politico and noted legal expert, will provide legal expertise and consulting services as it relates to policy being considered by the North Carolina General Assembly.
“We are fortunate to have Mr. Cuccinelli expand our portfolio of services, and we are excited to have him advise and consult for our clients,” said Betsy McCorkle, partner at KGA. “His legal expertise is well known and will be a great asset for us during the legislative session.”
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with Kairos Government Affairs and look forward to serving its clients throughout the legislative session,” said Cuccinelli.
As the former Attorney General of Virginia, Ken served as the last line of defense against many of the federal government’s attempts to overreach its Constitutional powers. He was the first state attorney general to challenge Obamacare and he successfully defended Virginia property owners from the E.P.A. Ken also served for eight years in the Virginia State Senate where he was the leading advocate for 2nd Amendment rights. As a private attorney, Ken has served as lead counsel in a class action suit against the N.S.A.’s tracking of phone calls of American citizens in violation of the Fourth Amendment. He is a founding partner and attorney with Virginia-based law firm United Self Defense, which specializes in defending those who use their guns in the lawful exercise of self defense, and has over twenty years of experience as a litigator. Ken is an engineering graduate of the University of Virginia; a graduate of George Mason University (GMU) Law School where he was on law review and chaired the honor committee; and has a Masters degree in International Transactions from the GMU School of Public Policy.
Based in the state capital of Raleigh, KGA develops strategic opportunities and solutions to reach policy goals in North Carolina. “Kairos” is a Greek term meaning “the perfect time, an opportune or propitious moment for decisive action, the moment of truth.” This articulates the nuanced practices that underlie a successful government affairs campaign and represents the thoughtfulness with which KGA works for its clients. The firm’s extensive client base extends across various industries and interests from health care and sustainable energy to technology and early education.
