Dennis S. Potter

Dennis Potter is a government affairs counselor at K&L Gates and focuses on federal policy. He represents corporate, trade association, and non-profit clients on a wide range of issues before both houses of Congress as well as the Executive Branch. He works with the firm’s clients and lobbyists to design and implement legislative strategies and proposals to develop Congressional and grassroots support for client priorities and counsels clients with regard to advocating issues before Congress. He has assisted numerous clients in securing and increasing federal funding for priorities ranging from development of energy efficient technologies to security preparedness.

For nine years, Dennis has served as the pro bono government affairs advisor to the USA Science & Engineering Festival, the nation’s largest effort to attract America’s youth to careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Under his leadership, the Festival’s inaugural Washington, D.C. Expo in 2010 featured the participation of 50 federal government agencies. That year, the U.S. Senate and House unanimously passed resolutions of support for the Festival. The most recent Festival Expo in 2018 included over 80 federal agency participants.

Prior to joining the firm, Dennis worked on the staff of Senator Phil Gramm (R-TX), where he focused on health care and Social Security policy.
