    Bricker Dayton expansion will strengthen Education Law Group with addition of 2 attorneys

    DAYTON, Ohio – Bricker & Eckler LLP announced today that it will welcome two accomplished attorneys to expand Bricker’s service to school districts, colleges and universities, and other clients in Southwest Ohio.  Joining the firm will be Janet K. Cooper and Beverly A. Meyer, both of whom come from the Dayton firm Cooper, Gentile, Washington & Meyer.

    “The addition of Janet and Beverly adds considerable depth to our already strong Education Law practice,” said Managing Partner Kurt Tunnell. “Their many years of experience as trusted and well-respected counselors to educational institutions and other employers bring additional strength and experience to our clients in Southwest Ohio.”

    Janet Cooper comes to the firm with nearly four decades’ experience practicing in Dayton. She focuses on all facets of school law and labor and employment law representing school districts, colleges and universities, municipalities and nonprofit entities.  Beverly Meyer brings 20 years of experience, representing school districts, townships and municipalities, higher education clients, nonprofit organizations and private employers, with special emphasis on labor, employment and civil rights litigation in federal and state courts, courts of appeals and administrative agencies.

    “We are pleased to welcome Janet and Beverly to our group and are excited to add their considerable experience to the service we offer our clients in Southwest Ohio and statewide,” said Education Law Group Chair Laura Anthony.  Bricker & Eckler’s Education Law Group is the single largest legal group in Ohio dedicated to education, representing more than 200 public school districts and educational service centers across the state, as well as colleges and universities, career and technical schools and other education organizations. 

    Both attorneys will join the Education Law Group at Bricker & Eckler on Monday, August 31. They will remain in their current offices at 118 West First Street, Suite 850, until Bricker & Eckler’s recently announced new space in the Water Street District is ready for occupancy in early 2016.
