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 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.

For 2021, your ORA Legal Center law firms are Isaac Wiles and Kegler Brown Hill + Ritter.
