The Wood Herron & Evans History – A Tradition of Innovation

The Wood Herron & Evans legacy in Intellectual Property law began in 1868, when Colonel Edmund Wood first opened his firm in Cincinnati, Ohio. At that time, the economy was bouncing back after the Civil War and innovation was booming. Wood paved the way in this area of law by acquiring patents for everything from farming equipment and machine tools to new inventions and modes of transportation.

After being joined by his son William Wood, the Woods continued to gain experience working  in the chemical, machine tool, graphics, and electrical industries as these fields emerged through the turn of the century.

By the 1930s, grandson Edmund P. Wood was now leading the firm and brought in partners Truman Herron and Edward Evans to accelerate the firm’s growth. Wood Herron & Evans moved its headquarters to Cincinnati’s lavish new art-deco skyscraper, the Carew Tower — which we are proud to say remains the firm’s home today.

As the intellectual property landscape continued to change, the firm also evolved, proving itself as an emerging leader in intellectual property law services not only on a regional level, but nationally and internationally, as well.

In 2010, Wood Herron & Evans experienced significant growth by the  incorporation of an established publishing and media practice in Cincinnati.  This addition brought in new expertise in the fields of advertising, publishing, media, entertainment, and licensing.

Wood Herron & Evans’ capabilities continue to expand and evolve to meet the world’s ever-changing and new technologies.   This allows the firm to stay true to our roots as an innovator and leader in Intellectual Property law.
