Rob Elhenicky smiles at the camera

Rob Elhenicky knows everyone who’s anyone in Michigan politics, which is a good quality in a lobbyist. He represents clients such as Diageo, Walmart, and The Michigan Association of Broadcasters. He’s also recognized as one of Michigan’s foremost experts on alcohol regulation. Most notably, he led our efforts to secure justice for the atrocities committed by Dr. Larry Nassar in his representation of the Coalition for Survivors of Sexual Assault.
