8. Lobbying Firm Cuts Ties to Name Partner
Lobbying Firm Cuts Ties to Name Partner Under Investigation in Abramoff Probe
Jason McLure - Legal Times - January 18, 2007

Lobbying firm Lundquist, Nethercutt & Griles has severed ties with former Department of the Interior Deputy Secretary J. Steven Griles.

Griles has been targeted in the Justice Department's ongoing corruption probe stemming from the lobbying activities of Jack Abramoff.

Griles, who had been a name partner at the firm, was a lobbyist for coal and energy interests both before and after his tenure at the Interior Department from 2001 to 2005. During Griles' stint at Interior, which oversees lucrative drilling and mining licenses on millions of acres of federal land, his ties to industry were the subject of a number of internal investigations. .....

As a lobbyist, Griles has most recently represented the American Petroleum Institute, Mettiki Coal, Newmont Mining Corp., and other large mining and energy interests on a number of environmental and regulatory issues.

Lundquist, Nethercutt & Griles generated $780,000 in lobbying revenue during the first six months of 2006, according to disclosure forms filed with the Senate.
