Jason is an accomplished strategist and negotiator, with a proven track record of helping public and private sector clients overcome their most challenging cross-sector problems. He is known as a creative problem solver who incorporates his legal, public policy, and business expertise to develop strategies that accomplish his client’s goals.

His practice focuses on public procurement and government contracts, Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) and Design-Build projects, infrastructure projects, special project consulting, economic development, local government law, administrative law, and public finance. He also helps governments navigate the regulatory requirements tied to their American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds and other state and federal grants.

Jason is one of the leading P3 experts in Kentucky. He led the team that developed the first local government P3 in Kentucky’s history and represents a number of cities, counties, state agencies, special purpose governmental entities, non-profits, and private entities developing P3s. His project experience spans from utilities (water/wastewater, natural gas, broadband, and industrial park development), social infrastructure (downtown revitalization, conference centers, event venues, entertainment complexes, multi-family housing, and administrative and government buildings), and transportation (parking, airports, riverports, and roads). Jason specializes in guiding clients from start to finish throughout the procurement process, from initial ideation and defining the scope to seeking industry feedback to developing the most advantageous procurement strategy, drafting procurement documents, navigating the evaluation and selection process, contract negotiations, legislative approvals, regulatory approvals, media relations, and dispute resolution.

Prior to joining Frost Brown Todd, Jason served as an active duty Infantry Officer in the U.S. Army for over nine years, where he commanded multiple organizations, planned combat and training operations, and deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. He then transferred to the U.S. Army Reserve, where he serves as a Civil Affairs Officer as a Lieutenant Colonel.

Jason leverages his nineteen years of public sector leadership and strategic planning experience to help his clients with their needs.
