Government Advocacy & Economic Development

DBL Law’s Government Advocacy & Economic Development practice group represents private companies and government entities on a wide range of economic development and regulatory matters.

We help companies navigate federal, state and local regulatory bodies. Our decades of combined experience at the highest levels of Kentucky state government, paired with board positions with public institutions, give us a unique perspective and practical approach when helping clients navigate government bureaucracies.

Our attorneys also provide a range of legal services to Kentucky state government, public universities, counties, municipalities, and quasi-governmental entities and utilities. Our attorneys understand the issues government entities face related to economic development and regulatory administration.

Our attorneys’ board positions with public institutions, past and present, include Tri-ED (the Northern Kentucky economic development agency), the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals, The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, and the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport.
