Frost Brown Todd is one of the two largest law firms in Greater Cincinnati, occupying five floors of the Great American Tower, the city’s newest and most iconic office building. Our Cincinnati office opened in 1919 with only two attorneys but is now home to approximately 150 attorneys and an equal number of business professionals.

 

Strengths

Led by Partner-in-Charge Chris Habel, our Cincinnati office is known for its deep bench and thought leadership in several substantive areas of the law, from labor and employment, intellectual property, and environmental law to commercial litigation, real estate, and government services. We advise the CEOs of publicly traded blue chip companies as well as 20-something startup entrepreneurs and everyone in between.

Industry experience, above all, remains the hallmark of our Cincy team. With more company headquarters per capita than New York and Los Angeles, we’ve developed strong relationships with leading companies across the manufacturing, energy, tech, healthcare, banking and hospitality sectors.

 

Members of our Cincy team serve in firmwide leadership positions, including the firm’s CEO, CFO, CIO, and CMO.

 

Community

Cincinnati is also among the most philanthropically driven cities in America, and our office exemplifies this spirit. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our clients and neighbors in support of organizations doing essential social service work in our community. Our firm has been recognized as a top corporate donor to the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, whose annual community campaign is one of the most successful nationally in terms of per capita giving, and one third of our attorneys also volunteer with the Pro Bono Network of Ohio.

Other organizations we support include ArtsWave, Equality Ohio, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Cincinnati Nature Center, as well as economic development powerhouses like REDI Cincinnati and the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.

 

Culture

Not least of all, we take great pride in our Cincinnati office’s inclusive, close-knit culture. We compete externally, not internally, and we have attorneys and business professionals who have been at the firm for 10, 20, 30 and even 40 years. When these individuals are asked why they’ve stayed for so many years, the answer is invariably “the people.”
