Taft attorney Brandon Dobyns has been elected to a three-year term on the Legal Aid of Western Ohio, Inc. (LAWO) and Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. (ABLE) boards of trustees. LAWO and ABLE are non-profit regional law firms that provide high-quality legal assistance in civil matters to help eligible low-income individuals and groups in western Ohio achieve self reliance, equal justice and economic opportunity.
Dobyns serves as counsel to clients on government contract matters, including subcontracting, bid protests and contract interpretation. However, he provides this counsel to clients from a unique perspective. Prior to joining Taft, Brandon was in-house counsel to a mid-sized government contractor and understands the business realities facing clients in times of crisis. When contract issues raise to the level of involving outside counsel, two things are on every business owner and in-house counsel’s mind: how can we resolve this issue in our favor, and how much is it going to cost? With Brandon’s in-house background, he is sensitive to how both matters affect operations and the bottom line.
