Dinsmore & Shohl LLP

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.

The National Law Review recognizes Dinsmore & Shohl LLP as a Go-To Thought Leader in the field of finance law, for their coverage of the Biden Administration's Changes to Cryptocurrency Regulation. Authors David A. Lopez-Kurtz and Vincent Mora provide noteworthy insight into President Biden’s executive order, which seeks to create financial stability and consumer and investor protections, among other goals. This resource reached thousands of legal and financial industry professionals, and serves as just one example of the firm’s excellent thought leadership.

The Labor and Employment Group at Dinsmore & Shohl is a Go-To Thought Leader for 2021 for its coverage of Ohio Employment Law Updates. The practice group’s coverage spanned changes in Ohio laws impacting employers and employees alike, including updates to Ohio’s Worker’s Compensation law, and the state’s long awaited Anti-Discrimination law, the Employment Law Uniformity Act. The group’s go-to authors on Ohio labor law include Anthony "T.J." Jagoditz, Jared Buker, and Jan E. Hensel.

The National Law Review named Dinsmore & Shohl as a Go-To Thought Leader for the firm’s Ohio COVID-19 news and for articles providing Coronavirus guidance to human resource professionals.  Dinsmore provided frequent updates addressing Ohio’s legislation seeking to expand telehealth access, Ohio’s law granting immunity to essential workers, and the Ohio Treasurer’s COVID-19 community response initiative designed to ease cash flow to local governments. Furthermore, Dinsmore’s authors received unprecedented readership addressing more general employer concerns such as OSHA guidance on mask-wearing, employer-mandated vaccines, and specific alerts developed for HR managers to help them keep pace with the numerous changes during these turbulent times. Dinsmore’s most prolific and well-read authors include Jared M. Bruce, Anna M. Dailey, Hayley Geiler, Thomas W. Hess, Jennifer Orr Mitchell, Jacqueline N. Rau and Faith C. Whittaker.
