Who We Are


The Havener Law Firm, LLC is the joint enterprise of Kathleen Balthrop Havener, an experienced trial lawyer who focuses on complex commercial dispute resolution and litigation, and Thomas G. Havener, a business and tax lawyer with decades of experience in business strategy, federal taxation, tax controversies, tax-exempt financing and general transactional work.

Together, Tom and Kathleen have 50+ years of experience in the legal profession, most of it in "Big Law" firm settings in Washington, DC and Cleveland, OH. We handle difficult and complex matters regionally and nationwide.

We are often asked by business clients to advise them on how to proceed in particular circumstances or under certain contracts. Our best advice is as frequently to deal with a situation outside the courts and to negotiate rather than litigate if that is what is best for our clients.

We have the flexibility to enter into creative fee arrangements that sophisticated clients desire and to respond quickly to client emergencies. The Havener Law Firm LLC is committed to exploring alternative billing arrangements, and utilizes the billable hour only at a client’s choosing. Our fondest hope is to partner with clients to learn the details of their business operations and core values, so that we can provide clients with wise counsel and practical common sense solutions in combination with the advocacy and writing skills that are essential to any first-rate representation.

Since 2008, The Havener Law Firm, LLC has been dedicated to providing owners of businesses of all sizes with impeccable and focused legal advice at competitive rates. Our firm is proud to specialize in commercial, business, and tax law. From acquisitions and sales to regulation and compliance standards to fraud, there is no topic we cannot assist with.
