Our Cleveland roots: Building a law firm of distinction

Kaufman & Company established its Cleveland headquarters in 2011, when Steven S. Kaufman, a nationally recognized litigator and trial lawyer with more than 35 years of experience, identified a need for a trial and litigation boutique law firm with national reach and an alternative approach to high-stakes business litigation representation.

When he left his partnership at Thompson Hine to form the firm, Steve recognized the logistical and financial benefits of basing his law firm in the Midwest; since then, clients across the U.S. have benefited from his vision.

The majority of our business litigation lawyers, including Managing Partner Steve Kaufman, are based in our Cleveland office (some barred in not only Ohio but also New York, Illinois, D.C. and Virginia), located in North Point Tower overlooking Lake Erie in Downtown Cleveland. We work with public and private companies headquartered in Ohio that have litigation needs here and in other parts of the U.S., and serve as a virtual firm supporting work in our other offices. Larger cases enjoy affordable Cleveland-based rates that provide team support, bringing down the cost of litigation in other major cities across the country.
