Basch

Clint decided to become a lawyer to follow in the footsteps of his hero-grandfather, who spent four decades as an Ohio labor and litigation attorney. Early in his career, he chose to carry on this legacy in the area of workers' compensation. Six years ago, the Ohio State Bar Association certified him as a Specialist in Ohio Workers' Compensation Law.

Clint joined KWW in 2016 where he counsels and advocates for employers on a multitude of workers' compensation, safety, health and employment issues. He has also represented businesses in civil litigation, employment law, commercial law, construction law and more.

He received his bachelor's degree at Washington & Jefferson College in Pennsylvania and continued his education at University of Akron School of Law where he earned his juris doctorate.

For the better part of his career, Clint was an associate, then partner, at a large regional firm in Canton.

OTHER PERSONAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND INTERESTS

Clint's life outside the office mostly involves enjoying time with his wife, Robin, and young children. He's raced in several triathlons and running events throughout the country. He also actively serves his local community in Stark County as a board member of Aultman Hospital and as a Little League baseball coach.
