But, they want someone who knows their business, takes their calls, and is ready to assist when thorny legal issues arise, all the while remaining cost-conscious.  Barry serves as outside counsel to several Kentucky-based small businesses.  During his government service, Barry was the state's chief attorney on matters involving the regulation of insurance, banks, construction, alcoholic beverages, horse racing, charitable gaming, boxing and wrestling, and professional licensing.  Give Barry a call to discuss how he can help your small business.
