Mary Langowski: 40 Under 40

The young lobbyists with the most influence in Washington

Name: Mary Langowski
Firm: DLA Piper
Age: 33

As chair of DLA Piper’s health-care policy and regulatory group and chief health-care adviser to former Democratic senator Tom Daschle—who also works at the firm—Langowski offers expertise that’s been in high demand over the past year. The self-labeled “wonk,” whom Daschle calls “the best in the business,” has been working with clients across the health-care industry—venture-capital funds, pharmaceutical and technology companies, medical schools and hospitals, to name a few—who need to navigate health-care reform.

Langowski has plenty of experience to draw on. Her time in the public sector includes managing Iowa senator Tom Harkin’s health-care priorities as his senior policy adviser and serving as chief policy adviser at the Iowa Department of Public Health under then governor Tom Vilsack, now Secretary of Agriculture.
