“If you want to win in Tallahassee, there’s no substitute for Doug’s brand of 360-degree insight and ability,” Firm Managing Partner Mike Colodny said.  “For an all-star linebacker like him to join our team says a lot about our Firm’s heavy-duty growth during the past decade.”

Experienced in lobbying Florida’s Executive Branch, Legislature and regulatory agencies, Mr. Bruce has held prominent positions with some of Tallahassee’s most respected organizations, for which he has provided clients with counsel on political campaigns and fundraising, legislative and regulatory alternatives to litigation, grant planning, and political and legislative strategy.

Mr. Bruce brings to the firm both public and private sector leadership experience, having worked at high levels in staff positions in both the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, as well as in such prominent positions as Vice President of Governmental Affairs for Associated Industries of Florida.

“Colodny Fass& Webb has earned and kept its place as one of Florida’s top lobbying powerhouses,” Mr. Bruce said.  “It’s proven to be a firm that’s big on substance and accountability.  I’m looking forward to working with this dynamic team.”
