Cleveland, OH. The Cleveland law firm Frantz Ward LLP has added Ashley M. Arvin to its Business Counseling Group.

Ms. Arvin will focus her practice on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, corporate governance and general contract matters for corporations, companies and partnerships. She also represents companies and individuals in zoning and land use matters, and she counsels clients regarding real estate acquisitions, divestitures and drafting and negotiating purchase agreements and leases.

Ms. Arvin is a graduate of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, and obtained her undergraduate degree at Purdue University.
