O’Brien Quoted in Crain’s Cleveland Business Sunshine Laws Article

Cleveland partner Gregory J. O’Brien is quoted in the Crain’s Cleveland Business article “Lawmakers are conducting essential business, but must deal with challenges of virtual meetings.” The article addresses the coronavirus disruption that has uncovered fundamental problems with state sunshine laws, which require certain proceedings of government agencies to be open or available to the public.

O‘Brien was quoted as saying “From a liability standpoint, you cannot regulate someone from participating or joining a remote video public meeting, but you can, if someone becomes unruly, remove them just like an in-person meeting.”

O’Brien represents private and public entities in transactional, corporate governance and litigation-avoidance strategies. He offers strategic counsel to companies and C-Suite employees on contract negotiations, employment compensation arrangements, labor and employment, commercial disputes, and velocity and growth acquisitions.
