He also has extensive experience in administrative and international law.
Nalbandian, a 1994 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, is an Ohio State Bar Association Board Certified Specialist in Appellate Law. He has been recognized annually since 2007 by Best Lawyers in America for his work in Appellate Law and was named the 2016 "Lawyer of the Year" for Cincinnati Appellate Practice. He has also served as a Special Justice on the Kentucky Supreme Court.
Litigation Practice Chair Russell S. Sayre commented, “This is a great and well-deserved honor for John, who has devoted himself tirelessly to our clients for nearly two decades and has also been a great colleague and mentor to the many Taft lawyers with whom he has worked over the years.”
