Vorys

Since the firm was founded in 1909, we have grown from four attorneys with offices on the third floor of a small office building in downtown Columbus, Ohio to a nationally recognized firm of approximately 375 attorneys with offices throughout Ohio and in Washington, D.C., Houston, Texas and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During that period of tremendous expansion, our firm has created, cultivated, and celebrated a unique culture that is highly collegial, supportive, and inclusive, while at the same time unerringly focused on providing our clients with exceptional legal representation in compliance with the highest standards of professionalism. We believe that our culture has contributed mightily to our position as an acknowledged leader in diversity, to the honors that have been bestowed upon the firm and our attorneys, and to our continuing growth and success in the practice of law.
