ORA raising the bar on expertise with new Legal Center

For many years, the ORA offered a service to our members called “Ask the Attorney.”

Now we’re pursuing a higher level of solutions for our members who face more challenges today than ever running their restaurants, catering centers and food trucks.

That’s why we launched a brand new ORA Legal Center, providing the following:

More depth with multiple law firms
Expert counsel
Up to 30 minutes of free consultation annually
10% discount on services from firms

We are thrilled to partner with three respected firms in Ohio – Isaac Wiles, Roetzel & Andress and Dickinson Wright – that offer expertise across a spectrum of business needs. They all have experience, depth and insights in the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industries. We chose these three firms carefully and know their attorney’s well… they’re A+!

So, why are we doing this? Complicated laws are often difficult to navigate for business owners. Restaurants are subject to a wide swath of regulations at the local, state and federal levels and our Legal Center helps members address legal vulnerability.

The three firms in our Legal Center will soon begin offering articles and other forms of communication addressing industry-specific topics. Watch for webinars, podcasts and other informative materials, all available to you on our website.

We’ll continue to provide classroom-style events with top attorneys who are subject matter experts, consistently providing relevant content to ORA members. In the past two years, our “Town Halls” have addressed the federal overtime rule, new state liquor law changes and ramifications of the tax code. We also featured the chairs of the Ohio Democrat and Republican parties and leaders from economic development firms in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus.

The ORA strives to provide products, services and events that are beneficial to our members and their success, like #ORATech section on our website. Visit for more information.

Our mission is to bring you solutions for your toughest problems. Stay tuned for more announcements!
