R. Paul Stimers: 40 Under 40
The young lobbyists with the most influence in Washington By Marisa M. Kashino
Comments () | Published May 23, 2011

Name: R. Paul Stimers
Firm: K&L Gates
Age: 34

Stimers, who says he gets “the world’s worst motion sickness,” has no desire to go into space. But the K&L Gates partner wants to help everyone else get there. With NASA’s space-shuttle program coming to an end, Stimers is advocating for private-sector space flight on behalf of his client, the Commercial Spaceflight Federation. He successfully lobbied last year for passage of the NASA Reauthorization Act, which included $1.6 billion of funding for private companies building rockets for human space travel. Stimers also lobbies for other cutting-edge clients. He began working for the NanoBusiness Alliance in 2002, when he helped pass the 21st Century Nanotech Research and Development Act.
