Founded in 1954, KMK has approximately 110 lawyers and a support staff of 150 employees.
KMK attorneys view a client’s legal issues as though we were the CEO or owner of the business — finding solutions for problems and developing strategies for the future. Using this entrepreneurial approach allows us to help our clients move their businesses forward and to develop recommendations that are efficient, effective, and economical, all while keeping our clients’ best interests at the forefront. All of the partners and associates at KMK utilize this approach to the practice of law, which has made KMK one of the most successful law firms in Greater Cincinnati.

Firm Values. Practical advice in the best interest of the client and time-tested business solutions have been the hallmarks of KMK since our founding in 1954. We make these commitments to our clients:
Location. KMK retains one location in downtown Cincinnati, a deliberate decision made to enhance our ability to pool talents and resources to better serve clients and to provide increased value to our clients by maintaining relatively low overhead costs. Rather than invest in bricks and mortar office space, KMK invests in technology – virtual offices, proprietary extranet capabilities, and technologies which make us more efficient and allow us to communicate with clients very effectively and with less paper and less wasted resources. We travel across the country and internationally whenever needed, and we maintain lower costs and bridge distances through the effective use of technology. Our clients agree that KMK provides the same or better quality service as “big city,” multi-office law firms, at rates that our clients appreciate.
Inclusion and Diversity. KMK believes in developing and maintaining a diverse workforce. It is because of this commitment that we embrace the unique characteristics of all our lawyers and staff, which ultimately fosters individual success as well as the success of our firm. KMK is committed to recognizing the talents and job performance of all lawyers and staff, and we value the contributions that come from employees with a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. At KMK, our goal is to continue to generate and preserve a diverse work environment that provides creativity, productivity, and leadership effectiveness, and where our lawyers and staff feel enriched and empowered to provide client solutions that exceed expectations.
