Legal Center

The Ohio Restaurant Association understands complicated laws are often difficult to navigate for business owners, and restaurants are especially subject to a wide swath of regulations at the local, state and federal levels. To help address this legal vulnerability, we’ve introduced the member-exclusive ORA Legal Center.


The Legal Center is a central symposium of a strong team of Ohio-based law firms with multiple specialties – Isaac Wiles, Roetzel & Andress and Dickinson Wright – that are available to provide counsel to members with expertise on matters that impact restaurant and foodservice professionals across the state, while benefiting our entire industry.

" The Legal Center is just one part of the developing Centers of Excellence: an online hub of information and resources on restaurant and foodservice industry topics and issues. "
