Washington, DC — Capitol Counsel LLC today announced that Ann Jablon has joined the firm, as a partner.

Jablon joins the Capitol Counsel team as a seasoned Capitol Hill veteran. Jablon most recently served as the long-time chief of staff to Congressman Richard E. Neal from Massachusetts, a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee and dean of the New England Congressional delegation.

Jablon’s role as Congressman Neal’s health care adviser led her to become involved in committee deliberations that included the Affordable Care Act and Medicare reimbursement policies. She oversaw Neal’s legislative portfolio and developed a strong familiarity with financial services, tax and trade issues. Jablon also served as the principal liaison to the Massachusetts Congressional delegation, convening meetings on issues of shared regional and economic significance. Additionally, she managed Neal’s re-election and leadership fundraising operations.

“Ann’s years of experience working with the members and staff of the Ways and Means Committee, and her deep familiarity with the Committee’s important areas of jurisdiction, make her a valuable addition to our already formidable team here at Capitol Counsel,” former Congressman and Capitol Counsel partner Jim McCrery said of Jablon joining the firm.

Shannon Finley, Capitol Counsel partner added, “Given Ann’s exemplary reputation on the Hill, we are very proud that she chose to join us at Capitol Counsel. I could not ask for a better colleague to be part of our efforts as we continue to grow and meet our client needs in the next Congress.”

Jablon is a lecturer with Boston University’s Washington Internship Program. She received a Master of Public Administration from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and a Bachelor of Science in journalism from Boston University.

Jablon officially began her role with Capitol Counsel on Monday, October 3, 2016.
