“While serving as interim Chief Strategy Officer for a publicly-traded manufacturer, I had the opportunity to work with Keefer Strategy on legal and business risk issues facing the company. This included contract negotiation and legal compliance strategies, as well as management of litigation and insurance programs. Chris was collaborative and conscious of business outcomes in working with our executive team, providing significant multi-faceted benefits to the company in the process. Chris was a trusted resource, and I look forward to working with him again in the future.”

"Chris had a unique ability to dissect our program and understood the importance of the cost-benefit. . . . The analysis he provided resulted in our team being better able to understand the risks we were transferring to insurers, ultimately leading to educated decision-making. We've found great value in KEEFER’s services and the importance of being prepared and would recommend KEEFER to other product manufacturers looking to better understand their risk profile."

“We worked closely with Keefer Strategy in connection with its legal services provided to a publicly-traded consumer products manufacturing company client, including management of various contract, labor, employment, litigation, insurance and environmental issues on behalf of the company. Chris helped develop and implement strategies to minimize the legal and financial risk faced by the company in a thoughtful and strategic manner. His proactive and collaborative approach provided a meaningful benefit to the company. Based on my experience, I would recommend Keefer Strategy’s Preventive Law services.”

"Chris was flexible in his approach and explained complex issues in such a way that we were able to understand and be conversant about them ourselves. We plan to continue using KEEFER in the future and strongly recommend this resource to business owners and executives who understand their business risks, but aren’t deep insurance experts.”

Chris Keefer’s knowledge and energy is essential to every business facing potential losses.”
