Corporate Law

Keating Muething & Klekamp helped support the ownership and management of FC Cincinnati win an MLS expansion bid, beating the odds to bring a third Major League franchise to the Queen City. The level of complexity was enormous, including public finance, private equity, government relations, contract, business development, stadium design and construction and more. KMK was a great partner and helped us overcome every challenge. Without KMK, not sure we would be here as a the 24th team in Major League Soccer.
