Education Law

Doug Ackermann Lockland City School District

Education Law

All of my interactions with any member of the Bricker & Eckler team have been professional, and the information is accurate and readily available. There is never any doubt regarding advice sought from Bricker & Eckler partners and associates. It is good to know that our school district is well represented.

Public Finance Law

Superb team, lots of depth and cross-knowledge that's extremely useful when tackling complex projects. As an example, we have benefitted from Bricker & Eckler's depth in other areas (health care, construction attorneys, environmental law, etc) when pursuing traditional public finance work on a large project. Firm's range is broad and highly skilled.

Employment Law - Management

The company I co-founded in 1987, International Risk Consultants, worked with Bricker & Eckler’s Ms. Joelle Khouzam for over two decades, prior to our acquisition in March of 2018 by a publicly traded English firm long associated with us on the wholesale placement side in London. Ms. Khouzam is an elegant problem-solver and one of the best listeners I have ever met. Our firm has (had) 32 partners and 73 people in 14 U.S. offices, nine overseas operations in China (5), Hong Kong, Brazil (2) and India, as well as formal business-sharing protocols with 27 foreign allies. We do not have a company attorney, nor did we have a law firm on retainer. Because of Joelle, we were known internationally for the success of our recruitment, training and retention efforts. Because of her, we won with our people in a very competitive field, one in which failure and mistakes and catastrophes loom every day in nineteen languages. We tried never to give up on anyone who had not given up on themselves. In our work with Attorney Khouzam, she was able to execute our idiosyncratic and precise designs in response to every personnel issue which arose. Her intelligence, touch and patience afforded us confidence in our judgment and the faith to have a feather touch when dealing with any issue related to our partners' success, and continuity. With Joelle's assistance over the years, we grew to become the world’s largest globally integrated brokerage house specializing in trade credit insurance and political risk solutions.
