King, who also serves as the pastor of Northwest Unity Baptist Church in Detroit, attended Harvard University. He represents clients in the health care, financial services, and non-profit sectors.

The firm’s metro Detroit area clients include DTE Energy; Wayne State University; Deloitte, a consulting firm; Ford Motor Co.; Ferndale-based DivDat, a data processing services company; Karmanos Cancer Center; and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, among others.

Kelley Cawthorne has a 10-person bi-partisan lobbying staff and offers services such as state lobbying, campaign finance strategy, and legislative monitoring, among other services.
