How’ve We Won

We WIN. 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 helped 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.
