Litigation Practice

Strategic and creative planning, clear and dynamic communication, and effective execution are the hallmarks of KKLL’s litigation practice.  Those hallmarks are built on a wealth of experience.

KKLL attorneys have clerked for judges sitting on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and the Pennsylvania Superior Court. In addition to routinely handling complex civil litigation, our litigators have served as special prosecutors, arbitrators, mediators, and hearing officers.

In the civil arena, our litigators have successfully litigated in federal courts sitting in numerous states, every Pennsylvania appellate court, common pleas courts throughout the Commonwealth and before numerous federal, state, and local agencies. KKLL has also been highly successful in alternative dispute resolution proceedings (arbitrations and mediations), consistently achieving positive results for clients.

Representing government entities and business concerns, we have recovered millions of dollars and secured numerous six and seven figure recoveries by prevailing in a vast array of disputes ranging from fraud cases involving the recovery of public funds, to construction disputes, to commercial disputes.

Defending businesses, we have defeated everything from putative nationwide class actions, to “bet the organization” litigations, to investigative challenges brought by government agencies.

A number of the cases KKLL has handled have received national and statewide publicity.

Our record in litigation representing both public and private sector clients is difficult to match in Pennsylvania outside of the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh markets. On a routine basis, we match up against larger law firms and against law firms from large cities across the country. We are able to do so by providing our clients with two distinct advantages. First, the analytical and communication skills of our litigators are elite. Second, due to efficient staffing, reasonable rates, and our sensitivity to controlling litigation costs, we are able to control legal expenses.

Before any judge, tribunal, or jury, the key to victory is credibility. Accordingly, our written work product and preparation for oral argument is meticulous, and the manner in which we present our clients and their cases is carefully thought out. At the outset of a case, we assign a litigator to “live the case” and to work closely with the client on a strategic framework for a successful outcome. By building close partnerships with our litigation clients, we not only provide the attentiveness of a small law firm, but we are also able to develop an intense familiarity with the facts and circumstances of each of our client’s cases that we use to plan for, and then carry out, only those steps necessary to achieve the client’s goals.
