Vorys Featured in Legal BisNow’s “Inauguration Day Roundup”

Attorneys & Professionals

Vorys hosted a gathering to celebrate the inauguration of President Obama on January 21.  The celebration was featured in a Legal BisNow story entitled “Inauguration Day Roundup,” which states:

“Vorys has been celebrating inaugurations at the University Club since '85. That's only 13 years after firm managing partner Russ Gertmenian, left, and DC managing partner Joe Lonardo, second from right (then just associates who'd also summered at Vorys) joined the firm on the same day. Joe and Russ and their families have celebrated each Thanksgiving and Easter together for the past 25 years, and Monday Russ flew in from firm HQ in Ohio. We snapped them with Vorys Advisors president and former nine-term congressman Dave Hobson and partner Randy Teague. Randy is busy working on the Utica and Marcellus shales. There's more to it than fracking: the midstream business of processing, storage, and transportation; downstream potential in polymers and petrochemicals; and issues of workforce development and water allocation"

The story also included a quote from Cory Amron, a partner in the Washington D.C. office:

"Cory tells us she's in the midst of an IP portfolio acquisition, which continues growing in importance as a business strategy for companies. And this year, look out for nonprofits and universities also becoming more protective over their IP."
