The firm also provides entity formation and organization services with corporations, partnerships, joint ventures and limited liability companies.

In addition to handling more residential closings than any other title agency in the southwestern Ohio area, its national contacts allow Lawyers Title of Cincinnati to assist the firm’s clients with title needs for commercial projects in any location in the United States.
