Christopher Keim Elected to ESOP Board

Frantz Ward is proud to share that partner Christopher G. Keim is elected to the Board of Directors for Empowering and Strengthening Ohio's People (ESOP). ESOP is a full service housing and financial counseling agency devoted to helping people in every stage of life become empowered to take control of their finances, make a plan for financial stability, and afford sustainable homeownership.

Chris' legal practice focuses on civil litigation matters, including general business disputes, product liability claims, transportation law, and corporate investigations. He has extensive experience in successfully defending businesses through trial arbitration throughout the U.S., with over seventy-five bench and jury trials to date. This includes representing closely held and publicly traded companies and their insurers in routine and catastrophic litigation involving the design, manufacture, and installation of their products.

Chris practices law because as early as the sixth grade he knew he wanted to be in the courtroom and help people. He realized his dream early in his career as a Cuyahoga County Assistant Prosecutor which brings a valuable government perspective to his practice. In his role as prosecutor, he was a first-chair trial attorney in adult felony cases, including white collar crime, drug trafficking and capital murders. He also led corporate investigations and investigations into criminal enterprises.

Chris has a B.S. from The Ohio State University and a J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
