Lobbyist Brian Ballard's connections to Donald Trump have landed another high profile client, the Motion Picture Association of America.

The industry group signed a deal with Ballard Partners in Washington with a focus on international trade, market access, copyright and intellectual property, according to a registration form signed Wednesday.
