At Kegler, Brown, Hill & Ritter, we know that the influence over your organization can come from all branches of government and that the maze of rules and procedures can be overwhelming if you don’t know the process.
The last decade ushered in a subtle, yet significant power shift. Term limits transferred institutional knowledge of legislative and administrative procedures from officeholders to bureaucrats, and from officeholders to lobbyists, shifting power from inside to outside the establishment. The end result? Your administrative and governmental relations lawyer is more important than ever.
Our integrated approach to legal services - which blends experience from our many other practices - yields a team with a unique perspective for clients in highly-regulated industries.
Kegler Brown attorneys represent clients in professional disciplinary proceedings, licensing, rule making, reimbursement and rate-making proceedings, health care audits and interpretation of public records statutes.
Our attorneys represent individuals and companies before various state and local agencies, and private professional associations, including the Accountancy Board, Real Estate Commission, Department of Insurance, Liquor Control Commission, Board of Pharmacy, State Medical Board, Board of Nursing, Chiropractic Examining Board, Counselor and Social Worker Board, Department of Commerce, Department of Education, Department of Job and Family Services, Department of Taxation, Motor Vehicle Dealers Board, Ohio Elections Commission, Ohio Ethics Commission, Board of Cosmetology, State Board of Psychology, State Dental Board, State Veterinary Medical Board, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, and Environmental Review Appeals Commission.
Because literally thousands of boards, commissions and agencies impact our clients daily, we track the activities and rulings impacting your industry. What’s more, through previous experience in business and public leadership positions, Kegler Brown attorneys provide insight into the legislative and regulatory process. Our clients have benefited from the experience of a former Ohio attorney general and secretary of state, director of legislative affairs for the office of the Ohio governor and former heads of various state and national agencies.
