Columbus, Ohio

Our Columbus office is located in the heart of the city on Capitol Square. Columbus has a diverse economy based on education, government, insurance, banking, defense, aviation, food, logistics, steel, energy, medical research, health care, hospitality, retail and technology. As of 2013, Columbus has the headquarters of four corporations in the U.S. Fortune 500, including Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, American Electric Power, L Brands and Big Lots; Cardinal Health and Wendy's corporations are also based in the Columbus metropolitan area.

The city’s growth has been spurred by a blend of friendly neighborhoods, trendy restaurants and retail, burgeoning entertainment options and a business-friendly environment. In addition, educational opportunities abound — Columbus is home to The Ohio State University, a diverse range of smaller colleges and universities, and nationally-recognized preparatory and public schools. There’s a rich, vibrant arts and cultural community as well, with world-class symphony, ballet and opera, the Museum of Art and an array of smaller museums and galleries.
