RKC is a firm of 95 attorneys representing corporate clients throughout the US. While our primary emphasis is on the Southeast, our practice is national. We handle a variety of disputes, but our primary focus is on business and commercial litigation. Whether state or federal, trial, appellate or arbitration, we bring the same tough, zealous advocacy to all of our clients' cases.
"Never underestimate the use of imagination and creativity to get the job done," says co-founding partner, William "Bud" Kirk.
When the founding partners encountered an unforeseeable roadblock at a Tampa courthouse in early 1983, they turned what could have been a major disappointment into what is now a memorable victory. "After we arrived, we quickly realized we could not get our demonstrative evidence through the doors of the building's elevator," recalls Thom Rumberger.
In the practice of litigation there are only two places you can be as far as technology is concerned: on the cutting edge or lagging behind the competition. We are committed to being on the forefront, arming our attorneys and legal staff with state-of-the-art technology so that information can be shared seamlessly and at a moment's notice when needed. We integrate the latest technology into our practice at every level, including substantial investments in programming proprietary custom applications to better serve the needs of our clients, attorneys, and staff. These systems and best practices provide us with a competitive advantage and can substantially decrease costs and increase efficiency in case management.
Thanks to the firm's legendary founders, Thom Rumberger, Bud Kirk and Dick Caldwell, Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell has long focused on the importance of excellence, respect, civility, collegiality, cooperation, and teamwork in the firm's culture and history. Since the first day the doors opened, the founding partners emphasized these tenets, and our subsequent leaders have taken great care to cultivate these attributes throughout the years resulting in the continued growth, excellence, and reputation of the firm.
