About Keating Muething & Klekamp PLL

Keating Muething & Klekamp is a Cincinnati-based corporate law firm focused on the following areas of law: business representation and transactions, commercial litigation, real estate, commercial finance and bankruptcy, employee benefits and executive compensation, labor and employment, intellectual property, estate planning and trusts and domestic relations law. While the firm has a single office in Cincinnati, Ohio, it serves clients, from start-ups to Fortune 50 corporations, on a national and international basis.

Focused on Business

Founded in 1954, KMK has grown from a three-attorney firm to over a 110-attorney firm while maintaining a single office in Cincinnati, investing in technology that enables its attorneys to serve clients across the country instead of increasing overhead with additional offices. Chambers has recognized KMK as a leading law firm in Ohio in corporate/mergers & acquisitions, general commercial litigation and bankruptcy/restructuring.

The firm's client roster represents a wide variety of industries, including companies like AK Steel Corporation, American Financial Group, Cintas Corporation, Fifth Third Bank, GE Aviation, Chiquita Brands, Macy's, Meridian Bioscience, AtriCure, Wal-Mart Stores, McDonald’s and the Procter & Gamble Company, to name a few. The firm also represents a number of startups, middle-market companies, non-profit organizations and venture capital firms—areas that have been a focus of the firm since its inception when it grew alongside several of its earliest and long-standing clients, such as American Financial Group, Cintas and Belcan Corporation.

In Cincinnati, U.S. News has rated many of KMK's practices as Tier 1 – including commercial litigation, corporate law, employee benefits law, labor and employment law, management, mergers and acquisitions law, real estate law, securities regulation and securities/capital markets law, tax law, trademark law and venture capital law, among others.
