In an effort to serve our growing number of diverse business clients in Central Ohio, Walter | Haverfield is pleased to announce that Bryan Jeffries has joined the firm as a partner in its Columbus office. Jeffries focuses his practice on commercial litigation as well as construction and business law.

“Walter | Haverfield presented me a great opportunity to enhance my practice in commercial litigation and construction and grow my practice in real estate,” said Jeffries who most recently worked at Eastman and Smith. “Plus, the firm is keenly focused on expanding in the Columbus market, which also enticed me to join the team.”

For the past three decades, Jeffries has guided closely held businesses and other clients through formation and financing, shareholder disputes and employment litigation. Within the construction industry, Jeffries represents owners, general contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers. At Eastman and Smith, Jeffries led the firm’s construction law practice group for three years.

Jeffries is involved in the Central Ohio Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) and the Central Ohio NAIOP (Commercial Real Estate Development Association). He is also a part of the Builders Exchange of Central Ohio, the Construction Financial Management Association and the National Association of Remodeling Industry.

“The entrepreneurial spirit of Walter | Haverfield fits in very well with my practice and my approach to practicing law,” added Jeffries, a father of three who proudly calls himself a “foodie.”
