From its beginning as a seven-person firm in 1925, Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP has grown to become a full-service business law firm with more than 225 lawyers, 55 paralegals and 475 employees in its five offices located in Toledo and Columbus, Ohio; Tampa and Sarasota, Florida; and Charlotte, North Carolina.
In each of our markets, Shumaker is a premier provider of quality legal services to our core constituency: individuals, small businesses, health care providers, nonprofit organizations, Fortune 500 and international corporations. Our mission is to work on our clients' timetable and budget, focus on results and keep our clients ahead of the curve.
Shumaker recruits and retains top graduates from leading law schools and provides young lawyers with specialized training in the areas in which they practice.
Many of our lawyers have advanced degrees in disciplines related to their practices and a number have clerked for federal and state trial and appellate court judges. Seventy of our lawyers are listed in the prestigious publication, Best Lawyers in America. Additionally, a number of our lawyers have received honors from various publications.
Shumaker has a long history of community support. The firm is a strong supporter of nonprofit organizations in each of its five locations and it firmly believes in giving back to the communities it serves.
The Leadership Shumaker program enables and encourages lawyers and staff to contribute both time and money to various public, private and not-for-profit organizations that promote the general improvement of our neighborhoods and communities, benefit our most economically disadvantaged citizens, and promote the arts and other sources of economic development. We hope to make a positive difference in the communities in which we work and live.
We understand that when selecting a law firm, most clients are primarily looking for four things:
- A high level of quality, sophistication, and experience
- A creative and imaginative approach that focuses on finding solutions, not problems
- Accessible lawyers who give their clients priority treatment and extraordinary service
- A fair, cost-effective price
Since 1925, Shumaker has met the expectations of business clients that require this level of service. For today's sophisticated clients, Shumaker offers a total package of quality, experience, value, responsiveness and an uncompromising commitment to servicing the legal needs of every client. That's been the tradition of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP and remains our constant goal. This is what sets us apart.
