Where creativity meets intellect, insight, and integrity.


We have one of the top litigation/trial practices in Atlanta, and it is a magnet for extraordinarily talented and credentialed lawyers. Our practice encompasses appeals (winning over 75%), business torts, contracts, corporate governance, franchise, intellectual property, officer and director, professional liability, RICO, trade secrets, and securities cases. We have handled everything from class actions to individual cases. Unlike many much larger firms, our lawyers regularly try cases before federal and state courts and arbitration panels.

We handle high profile matters that have been written about in publications including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Tampa Tribune, Raleigh News & Observer, Gainesville Times, Atlanta Business Chronicle, and the Fulton County Daily Report among others.

All of our litigation team members have top credentials and previously worked at large firms, including some of the most highly regarded firms in the country such as Williams & Connolly, Fried Frank, and Wilmer Hale. Virtually all of our litigators served in the highly prestigious and coveted position as a law clerk to a  federal judge.  Jeff Horst and Halsey Knapp lead this team, and both have been consistently recognized over the years by Chamber’s Guide to best lawyers for business (Jeff and Halsey are two of the few small firm lawyers to be recognized), Atlanta Magazine Super Lawyers, and Georgia Trend Legal Elite. Jeff was one of the principal trial lawyers in a 5 month jury trial selected by the National Law Journal as a top defense verdict of the year.

“We’re a small company, but K&H won big for our company. I’ve never seen an attorney like Jeff Horst who was capable of “steering” his interrogatees, and the audience. His ability to be subtle in subduing his legal opponent was profound.”

Halsey took on a complex high-dollar case that had been mishandled by two previous law firms. He and Patricia Minton have turned it around from likely failure to probable success, which was close to a miracle.”

Many of our cases come from referrals from general counsels or other lawyers. Why?

  • We shoot straight – if you want lawyers who will only tell you what they think you want to hear, don’t hire us.
  • We are creative – our intellectual acuity and experience helps us see solutions where others don’t.
  • We are responsive – we return phone calls and emails promptly and keep you informed.
  • We are experienced – how can someone advise you about litigation and its attendant risks and cost when they’ve never tried a case?
  • We are cost effective – we run a tight ship and won’t overstaff your case or churn out useless memos to the file.
