Political divisions are about as intense as they have been in the United States since the Civil War. Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, the Denver-based firm with the big Washington, D.C., presence, is hoping the addition of former Democratic senator and attorney general from reliably-red Arkansas Mark Pryor can help them grow their state attorneys general practice in a cooperative way. 

Pryor, who was attorney general in the Razorback state from 1999 to 2003 and senator for the same from 2003 to 2015, has picked up shop from Venable and landed in the D.C. offices of lobbying giant Brownstein, the firm announced today.
