Maloney is the former legislative director to the ex-Texas GOP congressman and House Majority Leader Tom Delay, who resigned in 2005 amidst a campaign finance investigation. Maloney, who focused primarily on energy issues for Delay, maintained a well-regarded reputation within Republican circles as he transitioned to lobbying at Ogilvy Government Relations in 2002. He is noted for maintaining ties to key GOP players on the Hill. Maloney has also served as a GOP strategist and fundraiser for the formerly GOP lobbying shop that has become more bipartisan in recent years. (Maloney, for example, was active on former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney’s 2008 presidential bid.) Maloney’s GOP connections and expertise go further back, as he once worked on judiciary and commerce issues for former representative Ed Bryant of Tennessee and energy and appropriations for Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi. He now ranks among the top lobbyists in terms of billing, helping bring into the firm nearly $11 million from 42 clients in the first three quarters of 2011. His top-paying client is The Blackstone Group, which paid $3.75 million for monitoring of the 2010 financial-services-reform law, derivatives legislation, energy issues, and tax reform. On behalf of Chevron—which ranks third among Fortune 100 companies—Maloney helped lobby issues related to overseas oil and gas investment, energy, and climate change legislation. Other Fortune 100 clients include Hess Corp., Verizon Wireless, Pfizer Inc., and United Technologies Corp. Maloney works alongside Gordon Taylor—former chief of staff to Rep. Chris John of Louisiana, who served on the Committee on Energy and Commerce—and former aide to GOP representative James A. Hays on Ways and Means issues. Taylor represents various U.S. and global companies specializing in energy, financial services, health care, and technology issues. His clients paid $10.75 million in the first three quarters of 2011.
