Sometimes the choice of outside counsel boils down to which firm can cover your company in a distant jurisdiction that is unfamiliar to in-house attorneys. But Abercrombie & Fitch Co. found a very important ally in a firm less than 20 miles away from its New Albany, Ohio, headquarters. Robert Bostrom, the company’s GC, says that Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease is one of its go-to firms. Not only does Vorys have a deep understanding of retail, he says, but its close proximity to Abercrombie in the greater Columbus, Ohio, area allows the firm and the retailer to partner in unique ways.
