Lough litigates disputes on behalf of states, local government entities, corporations, and individuals, in both federal and state forums.
Often these disputes arise in the context of complex regulatory schemes or the Administrative Procedure Act.
Recently, he worked extensively on a small team representing a state in litigation against the federal government regarding state pension reform efforts and the effect of those efforts on state eligibility for federal transportation funding. Lough also has been active in multi-forum litigation regarding a regional transit authority's rail expansion efforts on behalf of one of its member states. In addition, he handles a wide range of intra-agency regulatory matters, including before the Federal Maritime Commission. From 2014-2015, Lough clerked for the Honorable Jonathan Goodman of the Southern District of Florida.
Lough is known by clients for his straightforward and efficient approach. He focuses on a streamlined process aimed at getting excellent results as quickly as possible.
