Brian has extensive experience advising the State of Ohio, local governments, school districts, and colleges/universities in connection with economic development projects, eminent domain, Ohio's Sunshine Laws, land use and zoning code development and drafting, zoning compliance, school law and constitutional questions.

Given his proximity to many in the collegiate athletic world, as well as his familiarity with NCAA regulatory guidance pertaining to Name/Image/Likeness (NIL), Brian also advises institutions of higher education and third party collectives on NIL strategy and compliance. Most recently, he helped launch the first NIL collective benefiting University of Cincinnati student athletes and Greater Cincinnati Charities (Cincy Reigns). A former adjunct professor of “Legal Environments of Business” and “Corporate Ethics” at UC’s Carl H. Lindner College of Business, he enjoys teaching and training stakeholders about compliance protocols, NIL infrastructure development, and how to leverage new NIL opportunities for maximum impact.

He serves as the Law Director/Solicitor for the City of Madeira and was unanimously appointed by the County Commissioners of Butler County to serve a second four-year term on the Port Authority Board of Directors. He received his law degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Law, and served as a judicial clerk for the 12th District Court of Appeals in Middletown, Ohio.
