FRANKFORT, Ky. — Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC is excited to announce a new service to serve its clients better — SKO-GOV. The new entity extends the firm’s services to include consulting and lobbying for both the Legislative and Executive branches. “The launch of SKO-GOV will not only allow SKO to expand the government relations advice it has been offering clients for more than a century, but it will also provide our clients the convenience of expanded government relations services,” according to SKO Managing Director P. Douglas Barr.
“Our firm has a long history of active engagement in political and governmental affairs, with a number of our attorneys having served in the Kentucky General Assembly and in key executive branch positions,” stated Bill Lear, a former 5-term Kentucky State Representative. “In addition, we have done considerable work over the years as Legislative and Executive branch counsel, advising clients on the legal consequences of various bills, amendments, and proposed administrative regulations. SKO-GOV represents an important expansion of that work.” SKO Frankfort Member Paul Harnice added, “As SKO grows, we continue to look for ways to serve our clients better. What better way than to provide them with the additional services they need from a team they know and trust.”
Operating from Stoll Keenon Ogden’s Frankfort, Kentucky office, SKO-GOV will focus on the full range of clients’ governmental needs, employing an individualized approach based on each organization’s goals and objectives. The SKO-GOV team will work closely with its clients to develop the best roadmap to ensure that client voices are heard by the legislative and executive branches at the local, state, and levels.
“We are committed to the growth of our clients and our community and value the role that government relations bring to continuing the trajectory of success for the organizations we serve and the state we call home,” said Barr.
