During his time at the U.S. Chamber, Gibboni represented the business community before state attorneys general around the country. He comes to the firm with a keen understanding of how the entities that oversee and regulate businesses at the state and federal levels operate. This perspective is informed by his work on Capitol Hill, engagement with key federal agencies, and execution of advocacy campaigns in numerous state capitols.

Gibboni is a trusted advisor to corporate legal and government affairs departments on enforcement issues, municipal litigation, public nuisance, lawsuit advertising, and state and federal liability protections. He also has worked with companies, policymakers, and regulators on various liability issues related to antitrust enforcement, data privacy and information security, environmental and climate concerns, and health care regulation. In addition to his substantive legal experience Gibboni is skilled in developing strategic communications and public relations plans to help companies in the midst of litigation and investigations.

“As state attorneys general move more aggressively into investigating businesses across a broad swath of industries, Roger’s experience and success in providing actionable advice on how to navigate the process and the personalities will be a valuable resource for our team and clients,” said Washington, D.C.-based partner Divonne Smoyer, head of Reed Smith’s State AG Team. “Roger brings a strong record of collaboration with state attorneys general, which is a hallmark of our practice. I enjoyed working with Roger when he was with the U.S. Chamber and look forward to working with him as a colleague.”
