Grappling with the realities of an increasingly mobile legal industry, the Ohio Supreme Court is considering whether a Dinsmore & Shohl associate who moved from Kentucky to Cincinnati could continue serving Kentucky clients as she awaits admission to the Ohio bar.

The Ohio high court heard oral arguments on Tuesday in the case of Alice Jones, a Dinsmore & Shohl litigation associate who joined that firm in 2015 after it merged with Huddleston Bolen. Jones, who was admitted to the Kentucky bar in 2009 and worked for several years as an assistant prosecutor in Louisville, joined Huddleston’s Louisville office in 2014.
