len A. Dugger is a partner with Smith and Hale, LLC. His practice primarily concerns land use, zoning, economic development and real estate transactions arising from development.

Glen's practice is generally focused in the central Ohio suburbs, with a concentration in Reynoldsburg, Hilliard, and Gahanna, where he has participated in many land use decisions for more than two decades. Like his colleagues at Smith and Hale, his practice often takes him before various boards, planning commissions and city councils throughout central Ohio. Mr. Dugger participated in two of the largest annexations in Ohio history (Marysville southeast in 1994 and New Albany in 1988), several of the largest and most complicated real estate assemblages in central Ohio (Easton Mall 1986-1990, New Albany 1986-1992, and the Limited's Reynoldsburg campus, 1989-1992), and conceptualized or helped structure numerous complicated partnerships between his real estate development clients and local governments. In addition to zoning and land use issues, Mr. Dugger has expertise with the intricacies of a variety of economic development tools including tax increment financing, job creation tax credits, and community development authorities. Glen has also represented several central Ohio suburbs (Grandview, Powell, and Marysville for example) on complex economic development issues.

Glen grew up in Columbus, Ohio, attended Ohio University on an athletic scholarship, graduating in 1981, and then began working for Smith and Hale in 1982 as a law clerk, and continued with the firm upon graduation from The Ohio State University College of Law in 1984.

He and his wife Joan have three children and live in Upper Arlington.
