Lane Alton offers representation in general civil and appellate litigation, insurance defense, construction claims, business, corporate and commercial matters, banking, real estate, employment and labor law, tax valuation controversies, liquor law, and estate planning to clients in Ohio and across the nation.
Since 1956, we have enjoyed an impeccable reputation for integrity and for the highest quality representation in trial work of all kinds. We achieved early prominence for our insurance defense work, representing both insured individuals and companies in lawsuits. Over the years our litigation practice has grown to include a wide range of claims, including professional liability claims, products liability, and commercial and business disputes.
Our litigators are veteran trial lawyers with formidable actual courtroom experience throughout Ohio and beyond. Being ready, willing and able to try cases has also lead to success mediating many complex, large damages cases. Our lawyers also serve as professional and volunteer mediators throughout Ohio and within the state and federal court systems.
We are trusted business advisor to companies and associations, large and small, in diverse industries and business sectors, including insurance and financial services, manufacturing, retail, restaurant, hospitality, and professional services. In addition, business owners and individuals seek us out to protect their good name, preserve their wealth and assets, and navigate life’s corporate, business, professional, and personal challenges and opportunities.
Lane Alton attorneys have served in leadership roles for various bar associations. Four of our attorneys have served as President of the Columbus Bar Association. Other attorneys have led various substantive and practice oriented committees of the Columbus and Ohio State Bar Associations.
