John DiLorenzo’s practice emphasizes change. Even if the law does not support a client’s position, there may be good policy reasons to support change. John’s practice designs and implements strategies to change the law by lobbying legislative and executive branch officials, initiating administrative rulemaking, or litigating to clarify what the law means.
John has authored and been a primary advocate for major legislation in the areas of state and local taxation, tort reform, natural resources, and economic development. John also assists clients in campaign finance, government ethics, initiatives and referendums, insurance recovery actions, environmental claim responses, appellate cases, and a variety of government-related litigation matters.
