Election Law, Ballot Access & Litigation

We have served as legal counsel to all sizes of campaigns, from statewide to school board, for both federal and non-federal office, and for state and local ballot issues.  Whether you need advice on a single question or you need someone to serve as general election counsel, including campaign finance report preparation, we have the depth of experience to provide you with timely, thorough counsel, and we offer flat-fee pricing based upon the needs you have and the size of your campaign.
 
We also represent clients in election and campaign-related litigation; from complaints before the Ohio Elections Commission to the preparation of Briefs to the United States Supreme Court, litigation has always been a significant part of our practice.
Campaign Finance & Tax Compliance

Many of our clients ask us to handle incoming contributions to their Committees, process expenditures, and to prepare and file campaign finance reports.  We have put in place proceedures to ensure the security, safe handling, and timely reporting of clients' contributions. We offer real-time, 24/7 telephone consultation for campaign staff and candidates to ensure contribution compliance. 

In addition to candidate committees, we are also experienced at creating nonprofit corporations and associations and ensuring their compliance with ever-changing tax laws.  The firm has successfully obtained rulings from the Internal Revenue Service establishing both 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations.
 


Government & Public Affairs

We also assist lobbyists, elected officials, and others with legislative research, drafting and compliance.

In addition, we assist our clients as elected or public officials and private sector clients with government ethics laws and reports.

We offer full-service lobbyist disclosure reporting and ethics report disclosures, at both the state and federal level, for our clients who are serving as elected or public officials and are required to file disclosures.
