Dan Tobergte

FORT MITCHELL (April 18, 2019) – Graydon law firm is creating a new Economic Development Services team and today announced it is the hiring of Daniel E. Tobergte to head it up.

The former CEO of Northern Kentucky Tri-ED brings over 33 years of regional, state, national, and international development experience to his new role, as well as an extensive network of working relationships with business and community leaders.

Downtown Cincinnati-based Graydon has offices in Fort Mitchell, Ky., Over The Rhine and West Chester, Ohio; and Lawrenceburg, Ind.

“No one in this legal market knows economic development better than Dan Tobergte, period,” said Graydon partner Tom Prewitt, who knows Tobergte from his board service at Tri-ED and who worked to bring him to the firm.

Jack Greiner, who recently succeeded Prewitt as Managing Partner, said, “Dan is the rare specialty talent who can catalyze a practice area. He undoubtedly brings us new capabilities, and we provide him with other complimentary capabilities that combine to create a really special offering for clients.”

Tobergte will coordinate the efforts of a team of eight Graydon attorneys that offers extensive economic development services from site selection and organizational planning to financing and incentives, all designed to enhance negotiation leverage, minimize business costs, and offer compliance management for incentives.

Tobergte earned his JD from Northern Kentucky University’s Salmon P. Chase College of Law and his BS and MS from Eastern Kentucky University. He is a graduate of the Kentucky Institute for Economic Development and University of Oklahoma Economic Development Institute. Tobergte is a certified economic developer through the International Economic Development Council and is licensed to practice law in Kentucky.
