Environmental: I represent business and commercial clients in litigation involving state and federal statutes, and laws regarding environmental risk and allocation. In my practice, I often deal with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as well as state environmental agencies. My experience with permitting and litigation involving agribusiness issues related to confined feed operations is recognized by the Indiana Farm Bureau, which lists me among its approved counsel.
Business Services: I represent the Hendricks County (IN) Tourism Commission and serve as legal counsel for the Indiana Tourism Association. This experience has expanded my knowledge of the assessment and collection of Indiana’s Innkeeper's Tax as well as the governance of county tourism commissions and boards.
I also represent several county tourism commissions on issues related to the assessment, collection and use of the Innkeeper’s Tax.
There will always be challenges in the business of running any business. Although environmental laws have been in place for decades, legacy problems will remain for the foreseeable future. As regulatory agencies face new issues, there also will be new challenges for businesses, ranging from large manufacturers to agribusiness, striving to comply.
On the agribusiness side, we will continue to see the conflict caused by the interface between urban and rural areas. Attitudes in the US are changing regarding how we grow crops and raise animals. This will drive future conversations and impact policies relating to how we develop and access foods and food sources.
