Committed to the community

Keating Muething & Klekamp PLL maintains a commitment to the economic development initiatives that help keep downtown Cincinnati a great place for businesses, as well as an affordable destination for family entertainment. Toward that end, Managing Partner Paul Muething and his team at KMK partner with local organizations that advance the community and its inhabitants.

An example of KMK’s commitment to the vibrancy of downtown Cincinnati is the law firm’s partnership with Fountain Square Management Group, a subsidiary of 3CDC, to put on the Wednesday Evening Concert Series at Fountain Square. This 16-week series features a wide variety of reggae bands, and was offered free of charge to the community and downtown visitors.

KMK also dedicates significant support to helping members of the community in need. It partners with a variety of local organizations, such as St. Aloysius Orphanage. KMK’s contribution to the St. Aloysius Companies 4 Kids Golf Classic will assist in its mission to provide services to thousands of children and families touched by mental, behavioral and cognitive disabilities in the greater Cincinnati area.

The firm has financially supported various other local charities, schools and civic organizations, with more than $500,000 contributed in the past two years. Members and employees of the firm contributed an additional $104,000 to The United Way and $50,000 to ArtsWave. Putting in time as well as money, KMK attorneys and staff average more than 5,000 volunteer hours per year.

As part of this volunteer effort, KMK puts its employees’ legal skills to good use. Last year, over half of the firm’s attorneys donated a total of more than 3,300 pro bono hours of service to charitable organizations. Involved with the Volunteer Lawyers Project of the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati, KMK attorneys contributed approximately 500 hours of service to Volunteer Lawyers Project cases.
