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 provide 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 & content to members with expertise on business matters that impact restaurant, foodservice & hospitality professionals across the state while benefiting the entire industry.

ORA Members receive 30 Minutes Free Legal Consultation + 10% Discount on Legal Services
