Keller Lenkner Promotes Seth Meyer to Partner and Kathryn Couey to Associate, Celebrating Rapid Firm Growth

CHICAGO, December 18, 2020 / PRNewswire / — National plaintiffs’ law firm Keller Lenkner LLC today announced the promotion of Seth Meyer to Partner and Kathryn Couey to Associate.

The promotions further illustrate Keller Lenkner’s rapid rise as a leader in the plaintiffs’ bar. In less than three years since its founding, Keller Lenkner has grown to include three dozen attorneys and nearly 60 professional staff members serving clients in class and mass actions, arbitrations, and multi-district litigation matters. Its lawyers hold leadership positions in coordinated litigation throughout the United States; its cases include matters that are at the forefront of antitrust and privacy litigation; and as the New York Times has reported, its arbitration strategies have left defendants “scared to death.”

Largely hailing from national defense-oriented law firms—and having clerked at the Supreme Court of the United States and federal courts of appeals and district courts throughout the country—Keller Lenkner attorneys have sharpened their legal acumen through the practice of law at the highest levels.

“The key driver of our success is our top-caliber, remarkable team,” said Keller Lenkner Managing Partner Travis Lenkner. “Seth and Kathryn are excellent lawyers and valued colleagues, and we are pleased to announce their promotions.”
