Laughlin, Tim







Companies, nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and individuals rely on Tim Laughlin's advice and advocacy in their environmental, energy, commercial litigation, and drone-related legal matters. Tim applies his legal experience to advocate for his clients before regulatory bodies including the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and Kansas Corporation Commission.

An interest in protecting the environment drew him to environmental law; he is passionate about ensuring big corporations and companies aren't damaging natural resources to the benefit of their shareholders.

Tim has represented clients on issues ranging from the storage of spent nuclear fuel, water permits, windmill farms, and utilities. Tim also handles subpoena requests for commercial litigation matters concerning properties located all around the globe.

Tim also has experience consulting with companies and individuals on the use of drones, and with municipalities and cities interested in using drones for a public purpose. He has advised cities and municipalities on drafting drone ordinances and implementing them.

Tim takes pride in his communication skills. Whether he's interacting with clients or opposing counsel, writing, or engaging in oral advocacy, Tim is adept at communicating with clarity. He also takes a personal, vested interest in his clients and ensures that their needs are heard and met.
As a native of the small Kansas town of Waterville, who went on to attend a small college and start his own firm before joining Long & Robinson, Tim understands the importance and value of family and of a small, tight-knit community.

Tim enjoys volunteering in his spare time. He serves as vice president of the alumni board of his fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and is active in the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's Attorney Well-Being Committee. He also occasionally DJs charity events, a nod to his prior nine-year career as a professional DJ.

Our condo association was faced with monumental construction issues thanks to the original developer of our complex. We were cash poor and in no position to get legal representation without a contingency fee arrangement. Luckily for us, Scott Long and Burke Robinson were willing to take us on as clients. Their work ethic, professionalism and knowledge of condominium construction served our association very well. Any association would be well served in hiring these gentlemen to represent them.
