Archer Public Affairs expands footprint with new office in Pa.

Trenton-based Archer Public Affairs LLC, the government and external relations affiliate of Archer & Greiner P.C., announced Wednesday it has opened a new office in Pennsylvania.

The new space, located at 1007 North Front St., Suite No. 302A in Harrisburg, will serve as APA’s Pennsylvania headquarters, it said.

 “As our government affairs practice expands and the needs of our clients evolve, having an established presence in the Harrisburg community is key to our business development efforts,” John Taylor, director of the Pennsylvania practice of Archer Public Affairs, said. “The decision to open a new office allows us to magnify our presence in the region and be at the heart of government in Pennsylvania.”

In addition to the new office, APA announced that Eric Bugaile is joining the team as a government affairs specialist. He will lead the business and policy objectives alongside Taylor in Harrisburg.

Taylor, who serves of counsel to Archer & Greiner, was named director of APA’s Pennsylvania practice in January. Before that, he served in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for 17 consecutive terms.

“John and Eric have nearly 70 years of combined experience in government affairs, and are committed to a client-centric approach in Harrisburg. This new office should enhance our team’s opportunities and allow us to be better suited to serve all of Pennsylvania,” Christopher Gibson, president and partner of Archer & Greiner, said
