Senator Alan Dixon joined the firm in 1993 following his retirement from the United States Senate, where he had served for 12 years as the senior senator from Illinois and as the majority’s chief deputy whip. Mr. Dixon was a member of the Committee on Armed Services, Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, Committee on Small Business and a number of subcommittees. Since leaving the Senate, he has continued to demonstrate his commitment to public service by serving as the chairman of the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission during 1994 and 1995.
One of the hallmarks of Mr. Dixon’s career was his reputation of being able to work with both political parties and to form coalitions to work toward practical solutions. This is an asset which he brings to our clients.
