Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP provides business and legal counsel to clients throughout the United States and around the world. Since its founding in 1909, the firm has grown to one of the largest law firms in the country, with nearly 375 attorneys who are located in seven offices in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. The firm has had a presence in northeast Ohio since 1982, when it opened the Cleveland office. The Akron office followed in 2004. Attorneys from these Vorys offices represent clients from across the region, who range from start-up businesses to Fortune 500 corporations, from non-profit organizations to governmental entities and industry trade groups, and defendants embroiled in sprawling, multi-state class action litigation. Each of these clients receives an unflagging commitment to excellent legal representation and outstanding client service. The lawyers in the northeast Ohio offices are also actively involved in their communities, including serving with the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Association.
