Vorys was established in 1909 and has grown from a four-person
office to become one of the largest Ohio-based law firms with
nearly 375 attorneys in seven offices across Ohio, Washington,
D.C., Texas, and Pennsylvania. Vorys currently ranks as one of the
200 largest law firms in the United States according to
American Lawyer magazine. Representing from some of the
world's largest companies to individuals and small businesses,
Vorys virtually represents every industry: insurance, food service,
construction, engineering, pharmaceutical, automotive, banking,
manufacturing, higher education and many more. In addition, a
significant portion of the firm's work is on behalf of federal,
state and local governments.
Vorys To The Rescue
Vorys helps clients in all sorts of work, from counseling
clients on corporate governance issues, working to structure and
finance corporate transactions, negotiating real estate
acquisitions and franchising arrangements, developing and
implementing labor and employment law policies and practices,
complying with health care regulatory requirements, and even
identifying and avoiding potential environmental problems. The firm
focuses on recognizing emerging legal issues and developing
approaches that allow clients to conduct their businesses and
activities in ways that minimize the risk of future liability.
A Nationwide Firm
Vorys's lawyers have tried matters in federal and state courts
across the country and have argued cases before the United States
Supreme Court. Whether the cases involve toxic tort issues, claims
of employment discrimination, allegations of criminal activity,
asserted violations of the securities laws, claimed violations of
state insurance laws, or large-scale computer data breaches,
Vorys's attorneys have tried some of the most complex and
challenging legal issues found in courtrooms today.
Vorys was one of 42 law firms nationwide to be named a
"Cross-Practice Powerhouse Law Firm" in the 2008 BTI Consulting
Group's Power Rankings survey of the general counsel, in-house
counsel, CEOs, and CFOs of the Fortune 1000 companies. In addition,
the firm was identified by 23 Fortune 500 companies as a Go-To Law
Firm in six practice areas: contracts litigation, intellectual
property litigation, labor and employment law, labor litigation,
patent prosecution and torts litigation.
Instead of focusing on burgeoning success, the attorneys at
Vorys rather believe that by taking care of their "clients,
communities, and each other," the firm will be taken care of itself
and it goes to show that it has. For 14 years, Vorys had more
lawyers listed in The Best Lawyers in America than any
other law firm in Ohio, with 111 lawyers on The Best Lawyers in
America List, and 36 attorneys recognized as "Leading Lawyers"
by Chambers USA.
