Kenyon started his career amassing as much trial experience as possible, and in two-plus decades he has tried everything from death penalty cases to multimillion dollar business disputes to homeowner association mailbox grievances. These and other experiences in state and federal courts have prepared him to handle all of his clients’ needs, even those out of the ordinary.
The managing partner of Dinsmore’s Louisville office, Kenyon represents corporations and individuals as plaintiffs and defendants. He knows that whether his client is a person or a corporation, his work will affects others’ lives, and whenever possible he looks for ways to avoid protracted litigation. But he’s always prepared to go to trial if a case can’t be settled.
He has successfully represented business plaintiffs in jury trials, including three resulting in recoveries by his clients in excess of $1 million. He has also defended business clients in numerous jury trials in civil and criminal cases, as well as having substantial experience in bench trials, arbitrations and injunction proceedings.
His litigation experience includes class action litigation, breach of fiduciary duty litigation, commercial disputes, wrongful discharge litigation, and trade secrets and restrictive covenant issues on behalf of employees and employers. He also represents employers and employees in white collar criminal matters, both in the investigation stage and in litigation. Additionally, Kenyon represents clients who are the subject of investigations initiated by state attorneys general, state and federal administrative regulators, and law enforcement.
His clients come from an array of industries, such as for-profit education, software, construction, rent-to-own, coal, gaming, medical, and media. He has also represented the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers before the Kentucky Supreme Court.
Kenyon has a passion for pro bono work and providing legal assistance to the indigent. He has successfully tried three capital murder cases, accepted appointments to represent indigent criminal defendants in state and federal courts for two decades, and was lead counsel in a case that gathered national attention involving the handcuffing of two young children by a school resource officer in an elementary school. The case prompted procedural changes throughout the county’s elementary schools and resulted in a monetary settlement to the clients’ satisfaction.
