Tom Daschle, Baker Donelson form new group

Former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle has joined with law firm Baker Donelson to form The Daschle Group, a new public policy advisory group, the firm announced today.

Daschle noted the legacy of former majority leader Howard Baker, a former principal in the firm, in a release.

"Launching The Daschle Group in affiliation with Baker Donelson gives us the opportunity to provide first-class strategic counsel with the support of one of our nation's leading law firms," said Daschle. "Baker Donelson was built on the promise of practical solutions to modern day problems, and I am thrilled that The Daschle Group will be in a position to continue this important legacy."

The group will be located in Baker Donelson's D.C. offices.

Daschle was first elected to the senate in 1978 and served until 2004, when he was defeated by John Thune.

"Baker Donelson is committed to continuing Senator Baker's legacy of respectful discourse, principled compromise, bipartisanship and finding practical solutions to difficult public policy challenges facing the nation," said Scott Campbell, managing shareholder of the D.C. office and president of the Howard Baker Forum. "As a friend and colleague of the late Senator Baker, Senator Daschle shares that commitment to bipartisanship and brings a deep knowledge of the Congress to serve a wide range of clients."
