Ken is the chair of the Thompson Coburn Lobbying & Policy Group. Over the course of his 40-year career, Ken has advised clients in the areas of government relations and public policy across a range of issues, including telecommunications, financial services, spectrum policy, broadcasting, student financial aid, copyright, international trade, and immigration. A former Deputy Chief Counsel to the presidential advisor on communications and information policy, and former senior legal counsel at the Federal Communications Commission, Ken has led multiple congressional and administration lobbying campaigns, including a recent effort to stem "naked" short selling of publicly traded securities. That effort resulted in amendments to the Securities and Exchange Commission rules on short selling and additions to the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act.

Ken is a member of the advisory board of the University of Maryland University College Center for Intellectual Property. He has also served as a professorial lecturer on International Telecommunications at the Johns Hopkins University School for Advanced International Studies.
