Dinsmore & Shohl LLP

2019 NLR Thought Leadership Award For many businesses, it revolves around the concept of “more” – more certainty, more security, more innovation, and quite simply, getting more things done.

At Dinsmore, accomplishment is a mindset we bring to every aspect of our law firm. From the way we work with our clients to the goals we set for ourselves in professional development, recruiting and community involvement. We challenge ourselves to be better attorneys and higher achievers for our clients.

In short, Accomplish more is not about us, it’s about our clients and how we help them to be more successful — in every matter we handle and every interaction we have with them.

Insight
We work hard to stay ahead in an ever-evolving business, legal and regulatory climate. We focus on anticipating legal developments and industry challenges before they impact our clients. Our reputation for innovation stems from our understanding of what clients will need before they ask for it.

Value
Clients trust us because we invest ourselves in their business. We seek to fully understand their goals and legal challenges and where the two overlap, enabling us to bring practical solutions to the table. By responding effectively to what we know about our clients and their environment, we become their competitive advantage.

Resources
Our continued success flows from nearly 500 unique legal perspectives, and an equal number of highly-focused support professionals. We leverage dozens of discrete legal disciplines when needed, to provide a single, comprehensive solution to complex challenges. Our holistic approach to problem solving enables clients to see all sides of an issue — and proceed with confidence.
