H&K Partner Rides Along as MARTA’s New Outside GC | Daily Report

With a practice that focuses on government and governmental entities, Robert Highsmith was a strong candidate for the position of outside general counsel to MARTA. And the fact that he’s a lifelong Georgian who cares deeply about the future of Atlanta and the metro transit system’s role in shaping it just sealed the deal.

“It’s a very exciting time for MARTA and a very exciting thing to be a part of,” Highsmith says. “It’s an extremely fulfilling role to be able to support [the board] as MARTA undertakes this historic expansion.”

“Robert has a wealth of experience in the public policy setting. He has been involved in Georgia and Atlanta politics for a long time, and we thought that was valuable to us as we look to the next decade or two of MARTA’s existence,” MARTA board chairman Robbie Ashe says of the body’s decision to name Highsmith to the outside GC post.
