Our Law Firm

Built on the legacy of a large, national law firm but with the agility and personal approach of a local, mid-sized firm, Bailey Cavalieri represents businesses and individuals in legal matters throughout Ohio and beyond.  Our attorneys and staff employ the same streamlined, practical, client-oriented approach to every matter we handle, whether its complex multi-party litigation, a corporate finance transaction, a billion-dollar insurance claim, or a client’s estate planning needs.  It is because of these simple, yet unwavering, fundamentals that we have earned and maintained the trust of so many loyal long-term clients.

Our Approach

Responsive.  We communicate promptly to keep clients informed, we listen to their expectations, and meet or exceed deadlines.

Solutions Focused.  We help clients find practical solutions and look for innovative ways to reach their objectives in an ethical, professional manner.

Efficient.  We staff and handle legal matters efficiently to provide cost-effective, yet thorough, services, while ensuring that charges are reasonable.

Responsible. We take ownership of the tasks we are trusted to handle and treat clients like we would want to be treated.

Our Commitment

We are deeply committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.  Not only because it is the right thing to do, but because we and our clients all benefit from working with professionals of differing backgrounds and a broad range of perspectives.

Our firm fosters an environment where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed, where every voice is valued, and where we make it a priority to continually educate ourselves to better support one another.  Through our commitment to the Columbus Bar Association’s Minority Clerkship Program, as the founding sponsor of Moritz College of Law’s Identity, Diversity and Justice program, and through active recruitment efforts, we strive to hire and retain talented, diverse professionals.

Our History


Bailey Cavalieri LLC also has deep roots in Central Ohio. The earliest predecessor law firm was Knepper & Wilcox, which started in Columbus in 1923. As that firm grew it changed its name to Knepper, White, Richards & Miller and merged into Arter & Hadden in 1977.

All forty lawyers who formed Bailey Cavalieri LLC in 2003 previously practiced together as the Columbus office of the national law firm of Arter & Hadden LLP. Founded in Cleveland in 1843, Arter & Hadden LLP was the oldest law firm west of the Allegheny Mountains. At its peak, it had nearly five hundred lawyers in multiple offices throughout the country.

While Bailey Cavalieri was formed in 2003, our lineage can be traced back more than 100 years. Built on the foundation of a large, national law firm, we have the experience and resources to handle the most complex and sophisticated matters with the efficiency and responsiveness of a local, mid-size law firm.
