Mid-American firm now includes 15 offices across nine states and Washington D.C.
Frost Brown Todd (FBT) is formally consolidating its federal public policy and regulatory practices into a Washington D.C. office. The Mid-American firm now has 15 offices across nine states and Washington D.C. In addition to recruiting new members, a roster of nearly a dozen well-networked and experienced attorneys who represent their client’s needs in their home markets, including Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, and Kentucky and on the federal level, will support the office. It will operate virtually due to the pandemic and move into a permanent address later when quarantines are lifted.
FBT’s bi-partisan government service counsel has held high-ranking government positions at the national, state, or local levels. Others have served in an advisory capacity to prominent lawmakers, cabinet members, and federal commissions, and advocated for clients before federal regulatory authorities.
“With attorneys who have served and consulted on the national, state, and local levels, FBT brings well-connected experience to Washington, D.C. at a critical juncture in national policymaking under a new administration,” said Member Jonathan Miller. “By doing so, we carve a unique value proposition for our clients: reinforcing our personal and constituent-based relationships with key policymakers and the support of a full-service firm that can be responsive to any substantive legal service needs.”
FBT’s experienced regulatory attorneys advise clients in diverse industry sectors to ensure compliance and representation before various federal agencies like the Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Highway Traffic Safety Association, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, U.S. Patent Office and the U.S. Copyright Office. They are members of the Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition and provide federal-level real estate tax credit counsel, including the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, Historic Tax Credit and Opportunities Zones.
“Leveraging our extensive D.C. relationships with our unique ability to maximize client value makes opening a D.C. office the right call from both a strategic and client-service standpoint,” said FBT Chairman Robert Sartin. “Our attorneys provide businesses and individuals located in our key markets the ability to navigate their federal needs with counsel who understands the entire scope of their business.”
