Roetzel's Akron office, located in the city's downtown district, is home to a team of more than 50 attorneys. The office also houses the firm's corporate administrative departments. In 2014, 18 Akron attorneys were selected by Ohio Super Lawyers magazine as "Ohio Super Lawyers." Five other attorneys, under age 40 or in practice 10 years or less, were named as "Ohio Super Lawyers - Rising Stars." Twenty-three attorneys from the Akron office were named to The Best Lawyers in America© for 2017.

A number of our attorneys contribute their experience and insight gained from former government and business positions to assist our clients. Some of the posts previously held by our attorneys include: members of the Ohio House of Representatives; law directors; attorneys with the Environmental Enforcement Section of the Ohio Attorney General's Office; a supervising attorney with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency; a mayor; and a general counsel and senior executive officer.

As Akron's oldest law firm, Roetzel is proud to be in the heart of Akron. The office's continual growth and commitment to the City is reflected in its selection of headquarter locations over the years. In the early 1980's, the firm renovated and moved into the Carnegie Library Building, which is now included in the National Registry of Historic Landmarks. In 1999, as a result of the need for additional space, Roetzel renovated and transformed the former O'Neil's department store building into its current office location, situated next to Canal Park Stadium, home of the Akron RubberDucks.
