Jewish community member Eric Tanenblatt recently was named the chair of the global public policy and regulation practice at Dentons, the world’s largest law firm.

Tanenblatt retains his position as the head of the firm’s U.S. public policy practice, which this year added former Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens to its bipartisan team of state attorneys general.

“Dentons has an impressive bench of public policy veterans with extraordinary experience in many aspects of government who can advise on a wide variety of policy issues,” said Sharon Gay, Dentons’ Atlanta managing partner. “Eric’s global leadership will further position our exceptional practice to support clients with their most challenging policy matters, not only in Georgia, but across the world.”

Tanenblatt served in the administrations of both Bush presidents, including four years on the board of the Corporation for National and Community Service under George W. Bush. He was a senior adviser to U.S. Sen. Paul Coverdell and was Gov. Sonny Perdue’s chief of staff.

Dentons also appointed former state legislator Edward Lindsey as the head of the firm’s Georgia state government affairs team, which includes senior partner Steve Labovitz.
