Scopelitis Law Firm launches consulting business

Nov. 16, 2016
Former American Trucking Assns. Executive Vice President & Chief of National Advocacy David J. Osiecki, to lead new Washington, DC-based consulting venture

Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson & Feary, PC, the full-service national transportation law firm based in Indianapolis, announced today its latest expansion, the creation of a new, wholly-owned subsidiary, Scopelitis Transportation Consulting (STC). STC is a business consulting venture focusing on providing advisory services and implementation programs to companies in the transportation industry.

The Scopelitis Law Firm appointed David J. Osiecki, motor carrier industry expert and recent American Trucking Associations executive vice president, as president & CEO of STC. Osiecki will lead STC and will focus its initial service offerings on ELD training and implementation support, independent contractor training and advice for motor carriers using or considering using the IC business model, regulatory training on new rules prohibiting driver coercion, and tax savings plans involving equipment sales and purchases. STC will also make available various survey reports and white papers as a means of providing clients greater access to information impacting their daily operation, while also providing STC a market advantage powered by information gathered by STC and its parent firm.

 “Dave has a depth of transportation-industry knowledge and experience that many of the Firm’s clients already value,” Greg Feary said in announcing Osiecki’s appointment. Feary is president and managing partner of the Scopelitis Law Firm. “Bringing Dave aboard seemed a natural progression for him in a respected career and is consistent with the Scopelitis Law Firm’s mission to offer a wide-ranging menu of services across all transportation segments. STC should open doors to allow more access to an even broader base of industry participants beyond legal solutions to transportation-business problems. STC will take over where legal advice leaves off to provide implementation of solutions.”

STC’s office in Washington, DC, will be located at 1850 M Street NW, Suite 280. Osiecki can be reached at 202-728-2850, or at [email protected].
