When private equity firms decided to build their lobbying presence, they weren’t kidding around. They established a trade association, the Private Equity Council, earlier this year and retained almost every major firm on K Street. Now, the Washington-based Carlyle Group has lured partner David Marchick, 41, from Covington & Burling to the firm as a managing director and global head of regulatory affairs. He’ll oversee the company’s lobbying efforts, effectively serving as the firm’s first in-house lobbyist, and will deal with regulatory issues in more than 30 countries. Marchick called the Carlyle offer “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” that offered an interesting range of issues and fit well with his expertise. At Covington, Marchick, a former Clinton administration official, focused on international trade, investment, and legislative issues for clients including IBM. He says the firm was “a dream place to work. I wasn’t looking to leave. This opportunity just came up.” He starts at Carlyle on Oct. 22. Private equity firms threw cash at K Street during the first half of the year, seeking to avert Democrat-backed legislation that would result in paying more taxes on their profits. One firm, the Blackstone Group, paid Ogilvy Government Relations $3.8 million during the first half of the year. Carlyle has also worked with Ogilvy, shelling out $260,000 for lobbying services during the first half of 2007, according to lobbying disclosure records. Ogilvy’s Drew Maloney says, “We’re very excited about working with Dave and look forward to continuing our relationship with Carlyle.”
