"In this day and age it is difficult if not impossible to find a company that is so above reproach with an old world work ethic that is sought after but seldom ever found. Robert is an extraordinary attorney with an outstanding skill set and an excellent knowledge of best business practices. It is without hesitation I offer this outstanding review."

Tim P. Erie, CO

"Rob and Branden are professional, thorough, and extremely client-focused. They respond to communications very quickly (even in the evenings and on weekends) with the goal of solving client issues as efficiently as possible. They enjoy getting to know their clients as individuals, thus making them feel important and valued. You're in good hands with Rob and Branden."

Joanna Cain of Global Academic Consultants

"As a small business owner, I am constantly exploring ways to improve our firm’s operating margins, innovate, and remain relevant as competitive pressures mount. Since initially engaging Keating & Lyden in 2009 to address a narrow scope of financial matters, our firm has come to rely deeply on their professionalism and expertise in virtually all aspects of our business. Mr. Keating’s advice has proven invaluable in managing our corporate affairs."

Petros, Spectrum Pension

"Keating & Lyden has been instrumental in protecting our investors and intangible brand investments of our new company! They helped us with everything from our operating agreement, SEC filings and distribution contracts to ensuring trademarks are properly registered and dealing with the USPTO regarding our inevitable trademark conflicts with other producers. Rob Keating is the first person I call whenever we’re looking to name a new beer or cider brand, very experienced with trademarks!"
