About the Firm
Carpenter Lipps & Leland LLP, established in 1994 by the three senior litigation partners in the Columbus office of Jones Day, is a litigation boutique that combines a small firm atmosphere with large firm litigation opportunities. It now numbers approximately 30 lawyers. Carpenter Lipps & Leland clients are preeminent national and local businesses. The Firm's client list continues to expand because of its focus on litigation and its singular commitment to client service.
The Firm's litigation practice extends to all levels of the federal and state court systems, as well as regulatory practice before state agencies. The Firm's docket typically includes cases pending in 30-35 different states, as well as throughout the state of Ohio.
In addition, and as a natural extension of its location in the state capital of Ohio, the public policy and government regulation group has become an important component of the Firm's advocacy practice. Increasingly, the Firm is called upon to represent clients in the myriad ways their interests are affected by governmental issues, particularly in the areas of utilities, energy, manufacturing, banking and financial, education, and insurance, as well as trade associations and government entities.
