Charlie Faruki, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Faruki Ireland & Cox P.L.L., was recently selected as the cover story and photo for the 2012 edition of Ohio Super Lawyers magazine. One of several FI&C attorneys named to the 2012 "Super Lawyer" and "Rising Stars" designation, Charlie has been recognized repeatedly in Super Lawyers and other peer-selected rankings as one of Ohio's top lawyers; he regularly has appeared in the Ohio Super Lawyers list of Top 10 Ohio Lawyers.

The Super Lawyers selection process evaluates lawyers based upon professional achievement and peer recognition; honors and awards; firm and bar involvement and leadership; scholarship and professional writings; community service and pro bono activities; and other outstanding achievements. Charlie has been recognized as an Ohio Super Lawyer every year of the process since it began in Ohio in 1994. The Super Lawyer publication annually recognizes no more than 5% of Ohio lawyers.
According to Super Lawyers, “More than 35 years into an influential career, Faruki’s hard work and focus have made him a sought-after speaker and a counselor to turn to when a company’s existence is on the line. ‘He’s a lawyer’s lawyer,’ says Dale Creech, chief legal officer for Premier Health Partners, the largest hospital system in southwest Ohio. Creech calls on Faruki to handle “bet-the-ranch” litigation. ‘He’s able to take complex issues and distill them down in a way that makes it easy for the judge and jury to understand the heart of our argument.”’
An outstanding trial lawyer, Charlie focuses his professional time in the preparation and trial of complex business disputes, and has litigated cases in federal and state courts throughout the United States. Charlie is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America. He has chaired the Antitrust Section and the Federal Courts and Practice Committee of the Ohio State Bar Association. He has served as President of the Dayton Bar Association and the Greater Dayton Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.
