A group of lobbyists has split off from global law firm Dentons to start its own Jefferson City-based lobbying firm, Nexus Group.
Partners in the new firm include Rodney Boyd, Kate Casas, Brian Grace and Kelvin Simmons, the firm said in a news release. Boyd remains a senior counsel with Dentons, which will enable Nexus Group to provide its clients with access to Dentons legal services.
Nexus Group will be a member of Dentons 50, a multistate lobbying network the law firm launched in 2016.
The new firm’s clients include 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.
