Roetzel & Andress LPA

Since our founding in 1876, our clients are at the center of everything we do. Our attorneys take the time to develop a comprehensive understanding of our clients’ current business models and long-term objectives so we can formulate strategies that generate success today and into the future. Roetzel's entrepreneurial philosophy encourages our attorneys to think like our clients — with business minds, ready to embrace new challenges and implement innovative approaches. 

We take great pride in working for our clients, both big and small — from Fortune 500 companies and family-run businesses to nonprofit organizations and governmental entities. To meet their ever-changing needs, our legal services and office locations have expanded over time. As a full-service law firm, our 160+ attorneys collaborate seamlessly across disciplines throughout our 12 offices to achieve our clients’ objectives. 

As Roetzel has evolved, we have remained committed to cultivating deep relationships within our communities, the legal profession, and the industries we serve. When our first office was opened in Akron, Ohio, nearly 150 years ago, our founders couldn’t have imagined that what they started would result in a law firm of regional and national prestige.

Roetzel is known for its commitment to the communities we serve. Our attorneys and staff actively contribute to philanthropic causes by serving on professional, community, and nonprofit boards, and as community volunteers. Whether this means chairing a fundraiser for a local charity, buying and wrapping gifts for less fortunate families during the holiday season, or refurbishing an inner-city house, our people are dedicated to investing their time and talents to these endeavors. Many of our attorneys and staff are actively involved in leadership roles in various professional and community organizations.
