Former House Foreign Affairs chair will lobby for Saudi Arabia

Former Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.) has added another foreign government to his lobbying resume, his third foreign client in less than two months. Royce, once the chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee who now lobbies for Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, will join the firm’s team representing Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to a new filing with the Justice Department, to “facilitate meetings with federal government officials either via phone or email on behalf of” the ministry.

— Brownstein has represented the ministry going back to 2016, DOJ filings show, and was paid around $1.8 million for its work on the kingdom’s behalf over the past year, according to a March filing with the department.
