Parry and Romani Associates, Inc. was established in 1984 by Thomas D. Parry (1947-2001) and Romano Romani as one of the first truly bipartisan lobbying and consulting firms in Washington, DC. Prior to 1984, Messrs. Parry and Romani served a combined 18 years in key Senate staff positions.The firm's name was changed to Parry, Romani & DeConcini when Senator Dennis DeConcini joined the firm in March 1995. When Senator Steve Symms joined our team in February 2001, the name was then changed to Parry, Romani, DeConcini & Symms (PRD&S). Today PRD&S is one of the most successful and effective firms in the crowded field of Washington legislative advocacy.
From our very first clients, the Motion Picture Association of America and Sony, PRD&S has attracted many of the most prestigious corporations and associations active in Washington. Today, the list of active clients includes General Nutrition Center, Verizon, Maricopa Community Colleges District, Sunovion and AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
Over the years, PRD&S has been involved in every aspect of the legislative process and constitute one of Washington's top teams of lobbyists and legislative consultants. All told, the members of the firm have amassed decades of Congressional experience that allows them to provide the type of representation necessary to meet the legislative requirements of a diverse client base. While the firm has handled issues before a wide variety of Congressional committees, we have been especially active with the Senate and House Judiciary and Appropriations Committees; the Senate Finance Committee; the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee; the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee; the Commerce Committee; the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee; the House Commerce Committee; and the Food and Drug Administration.
