mith & Hale LLC has a long and distinguished track record of providing valued legal counsel on zoning, land use, annexation, and real estate development matters to clients with properties and projects in Central Ohio and beyond. Our attorneys collectively enjoy decades of experience in dozens of jurisdictions representing clients ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to individual property owners. Our ability to provide a high level of service to our clients while maintaining the professional respect of the local governments in which we do business has earned the firm the solid reputation that it enjoys in these communities.

The wide-ranging experience of the attorneys at Smith & Hale can bring unique perspectives to your project. We have a sophisticated practice relating to zoning, economic development concerns, transactional matters, and real estate litigation, just to name a few. Since each local government has distinct rules and different goals, a developer or landowner is best served by retaining professionals that have long-established relationships with leaders in each community, are well-versed in determining what is important to a particular jurisdiction, and understand its history. As a firm with an extensive knowledge of both public and private land use concerns, Smith & Hale is able to provide quality legal services to a wide range of clients.

Smith & Hale has a diversified practice that has allowed our attorneys to not only contribute to many of the major development projects that have occurred in Central Ohio over the last 35 years but to regularly and frequently represent clients with projects that may not be squarely in the spotlight. Our attorneys have played leading roles in providing legal counsel on most of the high-quality residential, commercial, and office growth in the Village of New Albany over the past two decades through its representation of The New Albany Company. We have represented the developers of the Muirfield residential development and golf course, the Dublin Methodist Hospital, and the Cardinal Health headquarters in the City of Dublin. Our lawyers have made substantial contributions to facilitating the development of Easton Town Center, Tuttle Mall, and the Brewery District in the City of Columbus and the Erickson Retirement Community known as Hickory Chase in the City of Hilliard. Smith & Hale has also represented residential builder M/I Homes since its inception and counts The Edwards Companies and The Limited as clients. While these major players have gained the firm notoriety, just as important to our success is our representation of less-publicized clients. Our attorneys regularly appear before various boards and commissions in numerous townships and smaller communities and have a proven track record there as well.
