A group of Missouri lobbyists have left the global law firm Dentons to start their own lobbying firm, Nexus Group.
The group will be headquartered in Jefferson City and provide governmental relations, contract procurement and public policy services.
The new firm’s clients include some of Missouri’s largest and most influential businesses and organizations, including Civic Progress, Express Scripts, Centene, Major Brands, Lyft, the St. Louis Blues, Teach for America, the Kansas City Sports Commission, Anthem, Spire, the Kansas City Zoo, Shelter Insurance, Leggett & Platt and the Missouri Economic Development Council.
Partners of the new firm are Rodney Boyd, Kate Casas, Brian Grace and Kelvin Simmons.
Nexus Group will be a member of Dentons 50 – a multi-state lobbying network. Additionally, Boyd will hold the title of senior counsel with Dentons, which will enable Nexus Group to provide its clients access to Dentons’ legal services, which was recently listed as the 19th-largest law firm in the St. Louis region.
