Keeling & Downes

A commercial litigation and appellate firm of "law lawyers." 

 

ABOUT OUR FIRM

Keeling & Downes, P.C., is a law firm that concentrates in complex civil litigation, particularly commercial lawsuits and appeals.  Our firm is recognized for its experience, professionalism, writing ability, and oral advocacy.

We consider ourselves to be "law lawyers." Our recent practice has included disputes involving contracts, construction and surety bonds, insurance coverage, oil and gas, products liability, trade secrets, unfair competition, and commercial torts. While we are experienced in the legal issues and vernacular common to these areas, we seek to simplify complex principles in a way that makes them readable and persuasive.
 

Our clients include not only individuals and businesses but also colleagues in the legal profession who desire our assistance in developing legal theories and strategies, providing sophisticated legal briefing, and preserving the record for appeal.
