Kahn and Airey featured in Business First Story on Columbus Attorneys With National Reputations

Benita Kahn and Jonathan Airey, partners in the Vorys Columbus office, were featured in a Columbus Business First story about central Ohio attorneys who do legal work for clients across the country. 

The story, titled “Central Ohio lawyers making mark well beyond region,” states:

“An attorney doesn’t have to work somewhere other than Columbus first to make a name here. Benita Kahn has spent her entire law career at Vorys Sater Seymour and Pease LLP in Columbus. She’s a partner focusing on data security. When data breaches plagued shoe retailer DSW Inc., TJX Companies Inc., the parent of T.J. Maxx, and Heartland Payment Systems, Kahn was called in to help with compromise response issues. That work put her in contact with forensics companies that, in turn, sent more work her way.”

“Another Vorys partner, Jonathan Airey, is renown for his work leading the firm’s energy practice. Because work in the oil and gas field doesn’t recognize state borders, when Airey gets involved in royalty contract litigation and regulatory proceedings for oil and gas companies, often it’s spread across the Appalachian Basin. He’s also been involved with trade associations such as the Independent Petroleum Association of America, where he was chairman of the law committee for a dozen years.

‘Dealing with a lot of the experienced executives in (the association), I have developed a lot of interest across the country,’ he said. ‘Developing those relationships has alerted me to issues that might be coming to my clients here in Ohio.’”
