With nearly 25 years of legal experience, clients frequently look to Kevin for his experience representing large scale agricultural operations in the area of livestock permitting and communicating and negotiating with both state and local governments, neighbors, citizens groups, and other members of the national agribusiness community. He also is experienced in assisting clients that operate as agricultural cooperatives with specialized business counseling under the Ohio Cooperative Law. In the technology space, Kevin’s attention is mostly focused with an emphasis on sports betting, esports gaming, daily fantasy sports, and other gaming and blockchain related legal issues. Kevin advises clients with respect to licensing, record-keeping, and compliance with state and federal law, including the Wire Act of 1961 , the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, the Bank Secrecy Act, and gambling laws, rules, and regulations in all 50 states and Australia and Europe.
