Get Back to What Matters Most

Culture and Collaboration You haven’t worked your whole career to fight with your partners.

Formed more than 35 years ago by nine attorneys who knew there was a better way to practice law, our culture is defined by collegial, collaborative relationships among attorneys, a non-negotiable dedication to client service, and a commitment to the communities where we live and work. Today, we are growing in all our markets and seeking like-minded lawyers who want to get back to what matters most — serving clients in an environment where attorneys are friends first, and business partners second. If this sounds like a better way to practice law, talk with us.

Value Versus Rates You haven’t worked your entire career to be priced out of the market by your own firm.

Clients want results, but they also want value — especially now. At Kean Miller, we understand that every client relationship is unique. Our partners enjoy a great deal of autonomy in setting rates for clients, undertaking engagements in alternative ways, and demonstrating value to clients beyond the billable hour. If you’re struggling to justify rates and articulate the value you provide to your clients, talk with us.

Support Systems That Support You You haven’t worked your whole career to be harnessed to an administrative plow.

The practice of law is tough and demanding. At Kean Miller, we provide our partners with robust support systems designed to allow you to do what you do best — practice law at a high level. Our management team is focused on providing you with state-of-the-art technology and facilities, financial and accounting professionals, marketing and business development support, human resources solutions, and talent and practice development opportunities. If you find yourself spending more time on administrative tasks than exceeding your clients’ expectations, talk with us.

“Having a career prior to law school helped me realize that who I worked with was as important as the practice area I was offered. During the week, you spend more time with your co-workers that you spend with your family.
I chose Kean Miller because of the people.”
– Associate, Lafayette Office
“Kean Miller is the choice because of the values it puts into action every day: commitment to excellent work, cheerful teamwork, and kindness in every interaction.”

“Kean Miller is more than a firm, it’s a family. It’s this unquantifiable quality that sets Kean Miller apart. From the onset, I knew that Kean Miller was not merely the place I wanted to work; rather, it was the firm from which I wanted to retire.”
– Partner, Shreveport Office
