About Us

Kiernan Trebach is a mid-sized law firm with offices throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States – from Maine to Florida.

Kiernan Trebach represents the evolution of a firm founded in the 1980s that was structured to ensure its vitality and success long after the careers of its founding members.  Kiernan Trebach began as a small insurance defense and coverage firm with one primary client.  In the ensuing decades, we have grown by demonstrating to our clients that we can achieve better results in a more cost-effective manner than many of our competitors.  We pride ourselves on evaluating cases for early resolution to provide certainty and cost containment for our clients.  When a case cannot be resolved, we have the talent and experience to litigate the case through trial and appeal, if necessary.

Kiernan Trebach began in 1989 with a single office in Washington, D.C. and a handful of attorneys.  We are proud of our progress through the years, maturing into a firm of more than 100 attorneys with offices throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.  We have focused on a slow and sustainable growth process to create a diverse working environment, while remaining sensitive to the needs of our employees and their families.  Kiernan Trebach has become respected for our effective defense of clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to individuals and small business owners.  We take pride in knowing our clients, understanding what they want, and exceeding their expectations.

Kiernan Trebach’s clients rely on the firm’s expertise to manage risk in major cases throughout the country.  We have a proven record as dedicated litigators who are mindful of the financial and business impacts of litigation.  Our practice is devoted exclusively to the representation of corporations, insurers, and self-insureds.  We are actively engaged in advising and counseling clients on risk management, claim resolution, insurance coverage, and every aspect of defense-related litigation.

Kiernan Trebach’s focus on the client has allowed us to establish lasting relationships with clients who rely on us whenever they need counsel, for matters large and small.  Kiernan Trebach’s client partners include well known entities such as McDonald’s Corporation, Howard University, Amtrak, Target, UPS, and some of the most respected insurance companies in the world.  

If you are a current client, we thank you for your support and loyalty throughout the years.  If you are looking for a law firm who will partner with you and work to achieve your goals, we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you.
