WASHINGTON — James A. Sartucci, former legislative director for Senator Trent lock, R-Miss., has joined the Washington office of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis, as a government affairs counselor in the firm’s public policy and law practice. Sartucci will focus on Coast guard, maritime and other transportation issues with the firm. As Lott’s principal legislative advisor since 1999, including the senator’s tenures as Majority and Minority Leader of the U.S. Senate, Sartucci’s experience included a wide range of policy areas — tax, land and water infrastructure, appropriations, disaster, offshore energy, aviation, telecommunications and the environment — in addition to his recognized expertise on maritime matters. Among the legislation Sartucci helped to enact during this time were the SAFE Port Act of 2006, Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006, Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Security Acts of 2004 and 2006, and the National Homeland Security and Combating Terrorism Act of 2002. Before joining Lott’s staff, Sartucci served as a staff member and Coast Guard Fellow with the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, where he worked with Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sens. John Danforth and Larry Pressler. Additionally, he was a commissioned officer in the United States Coast Guard for more than 17 years. “As one of its many substantive dimensions, K&L Gates’ leading policy practice includes a focus on the maritime area, where our practitioners have operated with distinction for many years,” said K&L Gates chairman and global managing partner Peter J. Kalis. “Jim is an important addition to our firmwide policy practice in general and to our maritime practice in particular.”
