Tarplin, Downs & Young tied for the second place in a list of firms that received the largest amount of lobby fees from 21 health trade groups and companies in second quarter of 2009.

“In the health care area, it’s very important to clients that the consultants they hire have substantive backgrounds in the issue,” Linda Tarplin said. White House and Capitol Hill experience runs deep at the firm: Tarplin served in senior health positions under Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush; Raissa Downs was a top aide to Sen. Michael Enzi, R-Wyo., the ranking member of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions panel; and lobbyist Michelle Easton held the post of chief health counsel to Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., the Finance Committee chairman.
