Columbus Chamber
The Columbus Chamber provides connections, resources and solutions that help small businesses and Fortune 500 enterprises grow Central Ohio's economy.

Provide us with a brief summary of your business’ services.
Tucker Ellis LLP is a full-service law firm of more than 220 attorneys with offices in Columbus, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and St. Louis. The firm is proud to serve a Fortune 250 list of national litigation clients and intellectual property clients, as well as sophisticated business clients, for whom we individually tailor our client service teams.

Tell us about your company’s mission and values.
Founded by 65 lawyers in 2003, Tucker Ellis LLP has strategically grown to more than 220 lawyers serving clients nationwide. We aspire to two simple but lofty goals: to provide everyone we encounter with a better law firm experience and to make a career for everyone who works here.

Our firm is structured to build and maintain the strongest and deepest internal and external relationships, foster true teamwork with our clients and one another, and continuously work to improve every facet of what we do. Having no billable hour requirement means that we reward our lawyers for their accomplishments rather than the number of hours they bill, giving us more freedom to work under mutually gratifying non-hourly fee arrangements, train and mentor our lawyers and staff, and focus on getting work done. Similarly, because we do not track origination or source credit for our lawyers, we are uniquely able to collaborate fully and collegially to benefit our clients.

What are the services you use the most (or are looking forward to using) from the Columbus Chamber?
We have been using the member introductions – the Chamber has been very responsive and helpful as we make connections with other members in the industries that we serve. We look forward to taking advantage of the in-person events to get to know more members and guests with whom we otherwise meet.

How do you stay engaged with trends that you see in your industry?
As counselors, we strive to stay abreast of trends in our clients’ industries and report on these trends when it makes sense. Our clients benefit from our ability to spot new ideas and fluxes in industry. Similarly, our attorneys frequently are invited to speak on cutting-edge topics at legal and industry conferences and seminars. We enjoy sharing this information with our clients and friends, whether as invited guests, co-speakers, or in follow-up information.

What is your company culture like?
We understand our clients want counsel who inspire trust and confidence and take their best interests to heart. Our culture of excellence, service, teamwork, diversity, and loyalty to our clients, communities, and one another is what sets us apart and drives us each day.

What makes Columbus such a great place to do business?
Columbus has such an approachable attitude and is growing at an impressive rate. The results-oriented practicality evident in our community makes living and working here easy, and the sophisticated industries in our region mean that there are a lot of smart and interesting people who come to the area and then put down roots and become part of the texture of the city.
