Jacob W. Purcell elected as Partner

We are proud to announce that Jake Purcell has been elected as a shareholder and partner of Manley Burke!

Jake’s significant experience and reputation negotiating high-value transactions and company-on-the-line disputes is only part of why so many clients consider him their “Chief Problem Solver.” Jake is obsessed with the client experience.  Whether representing a major university, museum, car dealership, technology company, or a few of the wealthiest families in the United States, Jake loves solving problems and delivering an incredible client experience.   

Jake was also elected as a 2023 SuperLawyers “Rising Star” in Corporate Law by attorneys across the state of Ohio, a distinction which is given to only 2.5% of attorneys in the state.  He served as Treasurer and a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors for the WAVE Foundation at the Newport Aquarium for the past two years where he oversaw the Foundation’s seven-figure portfolio. He was recently elected to continue in such positions for another two years. For the past six years, Jake served on the Board of Directors of the James Miller Memorial Fund. Finally, he proudly serves as an Adjunct Professor of Mount St. Joseph University’s MBA program (go Lions!). 

About this new role, Jake says:

“There is no better fit for me than Manley Burke.  We work as a team to consistently deliver for our clients.  I’m proud of the work we have done, but I’m even prouder of the work we will do. 

Finally, a shout-out to my family, with a special thank you to my wife for 15 years of unwavering support. Thank you!”
