With the experience he gained as a senior House staffer, Aaron Cutler contributes high-level knowledge of policy and regulatory matters to his practice at Hogan Lovells. Now a partner in our Legislative Practice Group, he lobbies Congress in energy and natural resources; banking and financial services; and technology, media, telecom sectors. He provides strategic advice to CEOs and executive managers on transactions and risks related to those transactions, and monitors companies and investment funds.
For several years before joining Hogan Lovells, Aaron served as senior advisor for Policy and Outreach for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA). In this role, he was the Leader's direct liaison to the House Committees on Financial Services, Natural Resources, and Energy and Commerce, and helped shepherd more than 100 bills on the floor. He coordinated legislative strategy with Chairmen, members and their staff, and other Leadership and Committee offices, and led outreach efforts to the business and finance community.
Aaron began his Hill career as a lawyer on the Energy and Commerce Committee staff under Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), where he focused on energy and environment policy. He then advanced to deputy policy director and counsel under Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) with a broad policy portfolio. Aaron also served as a senior policy advisor and counsel on the House Committee on Natural Resources under Chairman Doc Hastings (R-WA).
During his time on Capitol Hill, Aaron was named by National Journal as one of the top five staffers on energy and environmental issues. These days, he's a sought-after speaker at industry conferences, and was named a "top lawyer under 40" by Bisnow.
His professional career started in New York. He was an associate at two different international law firms, where he worked on futures and derivatives law, formed new private investment funds, and structured complex financial instruments.
