Greg Dunn has represented telecommunication clients for more than 33 years, providing legal and strategic assistance to a variety of private and public clients.

Greg has a comprehensive knowledge of both public utility and broadband issues. His clients include municipalities, The Ohio State Supercomputer Center, data centers and wireless providers. He also consults on state of Ohio public policy issues with Ice Miller Whiteboard LLC.

Greg also has Public Utilities Commission of Ohio experience in electric issues involving representation of parties in standard Service Offer Cases (ESP/MRO), CSS cases, merger cases, Ohio Power Siting Board cases, public way cases, municipal aggregation proceedings, competitive retail service filings, among others.

Greg assisted with the development and creation of the Dublink concept in Dublin, Ohio, which includes 125 miles of fiber optic, a conduit system and a Wi-Fi system, all connected to a municipal data center and the Ohio Academic Resource Network. Dublink has attracted international attention, including being named one of the top seven intelligent communities of the year by the Intelligent Community Foundation (ICF) in both 2010 and 2011. Dublink also received an award from the National Science Foundation and the White House's broadband initiative, US Ignite.

Another of Greg's clients, the City of Columbus, has pursued the broadband plan written by Greg in 2007. Columbus' successful execution of that plan has led to Columbus also being selected a top seven Intelligent Community by ICF for 2012.

Greg created a cell tower leasing program for the City of Indianapolis wherein Ice Miller handles and organizes all cell tower negotiations for the city. In the program's first year of operation, Ice Miller's efforts have increased the fees collected by the City of Indianapolis by $2.6 million.
