January 1, 2024News Releases

Dinsmore & Shohl LLP is pleased to announce the promotions of Sarah Cameron and Lisa Pierce to office managing partner in Covington, Kentucky and Dayton, Ohio, respectively.

Sarah, a litigator who joined the Firm in 2013, says she is excited about the opportunity to grow the Covington office. While the office has exclusively specialized in public finance, Sarah aims to transform the space into a hub for national services.

“I have a genuine passion and love for Northern Kentucky,” said Sarah. “For over a decade, I have been involved in community causes focused specifically on the growth and prosperity of Northern Kentucky.  I’m looking forward to putting the knowledge, experience and relationships I have built over these years to work for my clients.”

Just like Dinsmore, Sarah says businesses in Northern Kentucky are growing nationwide, and by offering local counsel in complex legal matters, the Covington office is well-positioned to support their growth.

In Dayton, Lisa concentrates her practice in general corporate and business law, corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. She is eager to raise the profile of the office’s talent, including strong intellectual property and corporate groups, while attracting new talent.

“It’s a good group of people here, and there are a lot of opportunities to continue the excellent service we provide our clients,” said Lisa. “We’re always looking for quality people and are opportunistic about who might be available and interested. We have a number of lawyers who have done very well here, both those that were recruited out of law school and lateral hires.”

In addition to the recruitment of both new and established talent, Lisa wants Dinsmore’s Dayton office to continue to be even more involved and supportive in the community that it serves, especially as the downtown area is experiencing explosive growth.

“Sarah and Lisa are forward thinking, talented professionals and I am grateful for their leadership in their respective offices and the Firm,” said managing partner Joshua Lorentz. “Their years of service to Dinsmore, and proven success, made this decision easy.”

At Dinsmore, five office managing partners are female, six women serve on the Firm’s Board of Directors and another six on the chief executive team.

“It is an honor, and it is great to have so many women in leadership positions both in Dayton and within the Firm,” added Lisa who says the majority of larger Dayton law firms and offices are led by women.
