Here are some of our successes
ABO assisted a transportation-related client in successfully navigating the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) process for technology approval.
Working with multiple federal elected officials, ABO aided a client in securing funding from the Department of Defense for unmanned aerial vehicle research technology.
ABO helped a client draft and secure passage of an amendment to legislation to study the long-term impacts of autonomous vehicles on the federal transportation system.
A Fortune 500 client engaged ABO in the hopes of securing a running a major municipal program. With ABO’s guidance, the client was awarded a $44 Million contract, the largest of its kind ever awarded in the country.
ABO was engaged by a consortium of financial institutions in possession of one of Chicago’s privatized assets. Through relationship building, and targeted problem-solving, the client was able to successfully sell and receive municipal approval of the lease to a new long-term owner. The new owner has since engaged ABO to continue representing the asset.
Helped a Fortune 100 company defeat legislation in Springfield that would have severely limited its ability to deliver a new product to the market. ABO built a strong coalition of legislators to defeat the bill that was championed by a senior legislator who served in a leadership post for the majority party.
ABO was hired to help build and direct a team of diverse professionals to pursue a license from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) for the purpose of operating a medical cannabis dispensary. ABO help the client build a balanced team, secure investors, identify locations for the business, navigate the community process, work with local elected officials and ultimately win both of the licenses for which they applied.
