The Columbus Dispatch Bicentennial article speaks to Porter Wright's longevity, relationships in Columbus

Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP was mentioned in a feature story in a Columbus Dispatch Bicentennial Special Section article about some of the oldest businesses still operating in Central Ohio.

From The Columbus Dispatch, Dan Gearino reporting:
"The law firm that became Porter Wright was founded by a British immigrant, Richard A. Harrison, more than 160 years ago. When he moved to Columbus, he set up shop on S. High Street.

Today, Porter Wright is one of the largest law firms in the state, with four Ohio offices, along with offices in Florida and Washington, D.C. It mainly represents corporate clients, including many in central Ohio.

Many of those clients have worked with Porter Wright for generations, the kind of long-term relationships that also help to explain the long lives of Schoedinger and Palmer Miller Nelson."
