CINCINNATI (WXIX) — Former Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley is expected to return to Keating Muething & Klekamp LLC, the law firm announced Monday.
Prior to his mayoral election, Cranley worked in KMK’s real estate and bond and municipal groups from 2009 to 2013.
“I’m thrilled to be returning to KMK Law,” Cranley said. “KMK Law is an integral pillar in the Cincinnati area where I can use my experience leading results for the city to deliver results for the firm’s clients.”
According to KMK, Cranley’s practice this time around will focus on tax increment financing, new market tax credits, solar power projects, government relations and public finance.
The former Cincinnati mayor’s experience in public finance is a big plus for the firm, said Alan Fershtman, managing partner of KMK Law.
“John Cranley provides KMK Law clients with a unique experience in law and government services,” said Fershtman. “Having John, a former mayor and councilor practicing at KMK Law, is an honor for us and a great opportunity for the firm and our clients. John has strong expertise in the area of public finance and in issuing bonds and tickets, and is a recognized leader in the development and administration of economic incentive programs and in promoting economic development in the City of Cincinnati and region.
Cranley will also co-chair KMK’s government affairs practice, the company said.
Cranley’s bid to become governor of Ohio failed in the May primary election. He conceded to Democrat Nan Whaley after The Associated Press called the race.
