Nossaman Expands Sacramento Office and Public Policy Practice With Nate Solov, Former Chief of Staff For CA State Senator Jerry Hill

Sacramento, CA (April 2, 2019)––Nossaman LLP has expanded its Sacramento Office and Public Policy Practice Group with the addition of Nate Solov as a Policy Advisor. 

Immediately prior to joining Nossaman, Mr. Solov served as the Chief of Staff for California State Senator Jerry Hill.  He served Senator Hill for over a decade, and prior to joining his staff, served as the Legislative Director for Assemblymembers Jared Huffman and Fran Pavley.  He spent over 17 years working in various capacities in the capitol, and staffed 125 bills over the course of his career.  He staffed legislation relating to a number of areas critical to the health of California’s economy—including water, energy, transportation, insurance, health care, and higher education. 

Mr. Solov’s legislative experience and the relationships he forged during his time in the capitol complements Nossaman’s strong Public Policy practice, both in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.  "Nate’s outstanding reputation in California, the credibility he has with government agencies and non-governmental organizations, and his proven track record of getting results at many levels of government adds immediate value for our clients," said Fred Dombo, Chair of Nossaman's Public Policy Practice Group. 

Nossaman's Public Policy Practice Group helps clients promote their interests and achieve successful results.  The Group has deep roots in Sacramento, having operated in the capitol for forty-plus years.  Its alumni in the Sacramento office includes former California State Assemblymember and State Senator John Foran, former California Assemblymember and University of California Board of Regents member William “Bill” Bagley and former California Assemblymember and Speaker Pro Tempore John T. Knox.  The Group includes senior Congressional Staff, and past senior officials at the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highways Administration, Department of Justice, and Senate Select Committee on Ethics.  The Firm’s policy advisors and attorneys have developed and maintained excellent relationships on both sides of the legislative aisle with administration offices in Washington, D.C. and Sacramento.

Jennifer Capitolo, a Senior Policy Advisor in Nossaman’s Sacramento office, commented that Mr. Solov’s “comprehensive, nuanced experience working on water, transportation, and healthcare legislation coupled with his skills shepherding bills through the legislative process will greatly benefit our clients.”  In addition to Ms. Capitolo, the Sacramento office also includes Senior Policy Advisors, Richard Harris and Ashley Walker.

"Nossaman's commitment to California, strength in D.C., and immensely talented group of attorneys and policy advisors attracted me to the Firm," said Mr. Solov.  "I look forward to helping the Firm’s clients identify business opportunities and overcome challenges.”  Mr. Solov holds a B.A. from San Diego State University.
