Faruki Ireland & Cox's diverse commercial practice is unusual for a firm its size.

Benchmark Litigation identifies the firm as highly recommended among Ohio firms and lists it as a peer among much larger firms for its litigation capabilities.  Chamber USA, another peer-reviewing company, rates Faruki Ireland & Cox among the leading firms in Ohio.

Each of the firm's partners has represented clients in major litigation including antitrust, securities, class actions and intellectual property cases.  Erin Rhinehart has authored several articles on media and communications law issues, which have been published in state and national publications.  She also speaks regularly at continuing legal education seminars.  She is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation and Ohio State Bar Foundation.  Recognized recently as one of the country's top litigation partners under 40, Erin has a busy media law and business litigation practice.

Jeff Ireland, the firm's managing partner, speaks frequently at continuing education seminars on subjects ranging from expert testimony and evidence to Lanham Act claims and false advertising.  Jeff is a fellow of the International Society of Barristers and the Litigation Counsel of America.  His practice is highlighted by class action defense and competition-based trials.  He is a member of the Board of Governors of the Ohio State Bar Association's Antitrust Section. 

Jeff Cox is a Senior Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America and served as the President of the Dayton Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.  Jeff serves on the FBA's Federal Litigation Section National Board of Directors, and has represented clients in a wide array of matters, including privacy and data security, products liability cases and class actions. 

To complement the experience of Faruki Ireland & Cox's partners and senior lawyers, the firm actively recruits at many of the nation's top-tier law schools, focusing on law students in the top 10% of their class and with Law Journal experience, as well as judicial clerkship experience.  The result of this effort is a strong group of exceptional, top-caliber associates at Faruki Ireland & Cox, diverse in race, gender, ethnicity and life experience.

    Client Comments

    "Charlie Faruki is the best litigator with whom I have had the pleasure to work."
    - Mathew Willenbrink
    University of Dayton
    "Although Charlie Faruki practices in a medium sized Midwest city, Charlie exhibits the character, skill, strategic thinking and tenacity that one would expect to find in a big law firm in a major metropolitan area such as N.Y., Chicago or L.A. I can't imagine any litigation issue that I would not want to have him handle."
    - Michael Jacobs
    SAI Global
    "Charlie is the epitome of excellent lawyering. He is knowledgeable, professional, hard-working, well known, and highly respected by his colleagues on the Bench and Bar; time after time he produces great results. He is responsive and always prepared. He not only knows the law, but can apply it to the advantage of his clients. He can "think outside the box" and "on his feet", constantly responding to changing circumstances. I've had the pleasure of working with him for over 10 years and he is my "go-to" outside Counsel for any complex commercial litigation on which I need assistance."
