The Ohio offices serve clients in all areas of litigation, and also frequently advise clients in transactional matters involving energy, business, employment and real estate development matters. The team of skilled attorneys are frequently called upon to litigate matters involving immediate injunctive relief, bet-the-company exposure, or other high stakes cases in numerous areas, including complex commercial, energy and eminent domain, class action, trade secret/non-compete, mass tort, employment, products liability, directors & officers, insurance coverage, unfair competition, professional liability, and catastrophic injury disputes. Our Ohio attorneys have extensive experience in appellate matters as well, and have appeared and prevailed in numerous appeals before the Sixth Circuit, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, the Ohio Supreme Court, and Ohio’s Courts of Appeals. The Ohio attorneys are also familiar with navigating state and federal administrative actions and investigations.
The Ohio offices have a robust team of Oil & Gas/Energy attorneys who focus their practices in the myriad of legal issues surrounding the Marcellus and Utica shale plays, including eminent domain and land acquisition, oil gas leasing, Dormant Mineral Act litigation, title disputes, and royalty rights. They dedicate a substantial portion of their practice to representing midstream energy companies in multi-billion-dollar interstate and intrastate pipeline projects and beyond, and have set critical precedent in the process. Our Columbus team has also tried cases to verdict in state and federal courts in various areas of law and held national leadership positions in Multi-District Litigation.
