That strategy has included acquisitions for the firm, which in the past five years has added two new markets -- Pittsburgh and Chicago -- and grown its partner ranks by 30%. Porter Wright has 223 lawyers between its eight offices including 124 lawyers (63 of whom are partners) and 237 total employees in Columbus.

Moritz College of Law, the Ohio Business Roundtable, the Columbus State Community College Foundation and BalletMet.
