Keating Muething & Klekamp Attorney Sarah Vonderbrink Geiger Honored at the Federal Bar Association’s PLEDGE Event
The Cincinnati law firm of Keating Muething & Klekamp PLL (KMK Law®) is pleased to congratulate Sarah Vonderbrink Geiger as a PLEDGE honoree by the John W. Peck Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.
PLEDGE is an acronym for Promoting Lawyer Excellence & Driving Gender Equity, and was created by the chapter’s Gender Equity Task Force to spotlight emerging women in the legal profession in the Cincinnati area. The honorees were selected from a number of talented nominees, based on the following criteria: women with 4-8 years of legal experience who demonstrate exceptional legal talent, exemplify the standards and professionalism one expects from an attorney, and exhibits a commitment and dedication to the workplace and/or community.
Geiger is an active member of the Gender Equity Committee of the Cincinnati Federal Bar Association, which was created to increase the number of female attorneys (and, by extension, young attorneys in general) who argue in court. She serves as a member of the KMK Law Women’s Initiative Committee – a sub-committee of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee that was established to encourage and support a culture that promotes equality in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women attorneys. Geiger is a champion of community causes and actively participates in many organizations.
Geiger has successfully represented a wide variety of business clients, including financial institutions and regional and national corporations. Her practice is concentrated in the area of litigation, with a focus on general civil litigation, business and commercial litigation, and personal injury/medical malpractice/wrongful death litigation. She has represented clients in a wide variety of litigation and business disputes, including class actions, collective actions, toxic tort litigation, multidistrict litigation, arbitrations, mediations, actions for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and other business tort claims. Geiger has experience advising trustees of mass tort settlement trusts on issues relating to trust administration, as well as in intellectual property/patent litigation and False Claims Act (qui tam) litigation.
Geiger earned her law degree in 2014 from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was a member of the Virginia Sports & Entertainment Law Journal, and the Family Alternative Dispute Resolution Clinic. Before graduating from law school, she worked as a judicial intern for Judge Lawrence VanMeter, then on the Kentucky Court of Appeals. Geiger earned her B.A. from the University of Richmond in 2010, cum laude.
