Biography

Kevin has been a Member with Frost Brown Todd LLC for 17 years and works with public and private clients as general counsel to identify and proactively manage legal risk to ensure that their business issues do not become legal obstacles. Kevin accomplishes this, in part, by utilizing his expertise in general corporate/transactional law, real estate law and construction law and relying upon his 10 years in the banking industry to help clients approach challenges and opportunities from both a legal and financial perspective.

In his private sector practice, Kevin serves as outside general counsel to private and family owned businesses. He advises clients on ways to reduce and mitigate business risk through the proactive use of specialized attorneys (labor and employment, intellectual property, tax) as well as legal “tools” such as shareholder agreements, buy-sell agreements, and non-compete agreements and through succession planning strategies. He actively works with clients to develop solutions to real estate, development and construction projects, general corporate matters, and various financing needs.

In his public sector practice, Kevin serves as general counsel to schools, municipalities, and townships on a wide range of legal matters which impact the decisions of elected officials, superintendents, and administrators. Kevin advises public clients on matters ranging from acquisition and development of real estate, construction of new facilities, transportation agreements, contract negotiations, dispute resolutions and general administrative matters. Kevin looks for ways to maximize the limited resources of public clients in order to achieve short and long-term goals while drawing on ever changing reforms and regulations which impact the public sector.

In addition to his legal practice, Kevin owns several small businesses located in both West Chester and Loveland, Ohio.
