Corporate Law

Innovative strategies to support growth and mitigate risk


Our multidisciplinary Corporate Law Group works together efficiently to advise a diverse client base of organizations and individuals engaged in international, national, regional, and local businesses, ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to mid-sized and smaller companies in a variety of industries.

With a strong focus on understanding each client’s strategic business objectives, our experienced corporate lawyers are trusted advisers on the day-to-day issues facing our clients. Members of our team have served as outside general counsel, providing clients an extra set of experienced hands to develop and execute forward-looking strategies, mitigate risk, and build the legal structure to support growth. Other members of our team previously have served as inside general counsel and apply their first-hand perspective to share practical insights to help our clients navigate legal, regulatory, and reputational risks. This deep and varied experience helps us to see the entire arc of our clients’ businesses – including critical milestones and potential roadblocks – and anticipate our clients’ needs, resulting in practical, effective solutions.

Our award-winning client service and flexible fee arrangements set Tucker Ellis apart from other law firms. We bring unwavering dedication and creativity to every aspect of our work to deliver high-quality legal services and value to matters and clients of every size.

Our practice is ranked in IFLR1000 United States, as well as in Chambers USA in the area of Corporate/M&A (Ohio: North), where one source comments that our firm “has excellent bench strength and is able to handle multiple assignments at one time.” Other sources describe our team as “easy to work with, practical and efficient” and “big enough to have the needed talent but agile enough to respond to client needs.”
