KMK's Litigation Group has one of the preeminent trial practice teams in Cincinnati and the tri-state region. We work with our clients to avoid litigation and minimize litigation risk. When litigation arises, we manage and try cases in federal and state courts around the country ranging from complex, “bet-the-company” cases to the unexpected, single claim complaint that is most important to you.

Our Litigation Group handles matters in several different practice areas and industries. We embrace the “T-shaped lawyer” concept where our litigators have experience with multiple areas and industries but ultimately focus in depth and excel in specific core competencies.

We pride ourselves on our efficiency and responsiveness. We are client-driven and partner with you throughout the litigation. We out-work and out-hustle the competition.

  • Trial-tested lawyers with judgment, perspective, and practical experience
  • Appropriate staffing and down-streaming of work within trial teams
  • Technological acumen to promote efficiency and reduce litigation costs
  • Midwest value/rates and alternative fee arrangements

We know no one wants to be in litigation - but when you need a litigator, call KMK.
