Former Counsel to Senate Leadership and Chief-of-Staff for Delaware Democratic Senator Chris Coons joins Bipartisan Government Relations Practice
Washington, D.C. – Mercury, a leading global, bipartisan public strategy firm, announced the addition of Adam Bramwell as Managing Director to its Washington, D.C. office. Adam brings years of experience in legislative, organizational, compliance and political strategy, having served as a chief of staff and general counsel in the United States Senate before launching an independent business consultancy.
“We are pleased to welcome Adam to our growing bipartisan team,” said Mercury Partner Vin Weber. “Adam brings an impressive combination of legislative and strategic expertise, having advised Senate leadership of both parties and managed a deep legislative portfolio shaping intellectual property, foreign affairs and other impactful policy areas. Adding him to the Mercury ranks means he will provide our clients with that same level of expertise.”
Adam Bramwell joins Mercury after a more than two-decade career on Capitol Hill, most recently as Chief of Staff and General Counsel to U.S. Senator Christopher A. Coons (D-Delaware) between 2016 and 2019. In this position, Mr. Bramwell supervised the Senator’s Washington, DC office while advising on political, legislative and policy priorities at the national and state levels. As a long-time Senate veteran, Mr. Bramwell’s guidance was highly sought after, which is underscored by his leadership experience and Senator Coons’ respected standing and committee assignments – Appropriations, Judiciary, Foreign Relations, Ethics, and Democratic Steering and Outreach.
Before serving in Senator Coons’ office, Mr. Bramwell spent over thirteen years as General Counsel to the Secretary of the United States Senate. In this capacity, he oversaw the legal operations of a $40 million, 250-person organization charged with the administration of the Senate. Mr. Bramwell also served as the Senate’s primary legal advisor regarding Lobbying Disclosure Act guidance and compliance, and continuity of government planning, as well as a trove of other regulatory issues.
Earlier, he worked as counsel to the Senate Select Committee on Ethics providing legal advice to Senators, officers and employees regarding the Code of Official Conduct and ethics laws. Prior to his transition into politics in 1995, Mr. Bramwell worked in both the non-profit and private sectors, serving as counsel and director of field service at the I Have A Dream Foundation, as well as an associate at Mudge Rose Guthrie Alexander & Ferdon in New York.
“I am thrilled to be a part of Mercury’s terrific team and excited to be part of a robust and world-class field of experts who are helping others in these difficult times and in the better, not-too-distant, future,” said Mr. Bramwell. “I am honored by the opportunity to apply my skills and experience in helping Mercury assist and guide its clients both for the near and the long-term.”
