Isaac Wiles announces its plans to expand by formally adding Jones, Troyan & Perkins, a 36-year-old Columbus law firm with established roots and long-standing success in serving the local business community. With this combination, three attorneys will join Isaac Wiles: Gary M. Troyan, John R. Perkins and Catherine (Cathy) C. Perkins. Their diverse experience serving Ohio businesses in many industry sectors and with varied corporate and business succession matters enhances Isaac Wiles' Business Practice. This news follows Isaac Wiles' recent addition of well-known Columbus attorney John D. Jolley, who joined the firm's Business and Real Estate Practices earlier this year as a partner.
"With deep history in the Columbus legal community, our firms have worked collaboratively over the years to serve business clients throughout the state, and we are honored to have Gary, John and Catherine join us formally to expand our corporate and succession planning capabilities," said Tim Miller, a partner of Isaac Wiles. "Their similar client service approach and entrepreneurial spirit make them well-matched for our firm's culture, and we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to welcome them and their esteemed client base. Their additions also enhance our ability to serve clients in meeting their business goals."
