About me

Robert Keating formed Robert Keating Law, P.C., the predecessor firm to Keating & Lyden, LLC, in May 2009 to provide the highest quality legal services to his clients. Before starting this firm, Rob spent several years counseling individuals and businesses at a Boulder, Colorado law firm. Rob’s practice comprises corporate and business law, mergers and acquisitions, private securities, intellectual property, corporate, partnership and individual taxation, estate planning, real estate and entertainment.

Rob attended the University of Colorado School of Law where he was an associate editor of the Law Review, Co-Chair of the University of Colorado School of Law (Rothgerber) Moot Court Board and Treasurer of the Class of 2006. As an undergraduate, Rob attended the University of Washington where he received his B.A. in Business Administration. Rob also served as the 2001 Interfraternity Council President and Senator of the Associated Students of the University of Washington. Rob was born and raised in the state of Washington, where he continues to practice law in addition to Colorado.

Very passionate about the environment and renewable energy, Rob served as Author and Research Coordinator for the Energy and Environmental Security Initiative, the predecessor to the Center for Energy and Environmental Security, from August 2006 through March 2007. Rob authored a report to the Colorado Legislature entitled Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading: Emerging Markets and Opportunities for Colorado. This report was commissioned pursuant to C.R.S. § 25-1-1303(2)(c) and examines the impacts, opportunities and risks for Colorado, its citizens and businesses associated with emissions trading systems and concomitant federal, state or regional regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, most notably carbon dioxide.

Rob was named by his peers as a 2013 Colorado Superlawyers Rising Star.

In his free time, Rob enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and daughter, where the family can typically be found hiking, snowboarding, and otherwise spending time outdoors. Rob also loves to golf, garden, and read. He also enjoys writing, playing and listening to music.

  • Thomas Paul Lyden

    If I have a business or tax question Robert is my go-to guy. Robert really has the complete package of intelligence, generosity and creativity that is invaluable in this industry. I do not hesitate to refer family or close friends to Robert when they need an attorney and you shouldn't either.

  • Richard W Beck

    Robert and I practice in the same general geographic area and our practices overlap--so given the close-knit nature of out community I have heard only the best about his knowledge, ethics, and overall ability to deliver a superior product to happy clients. We had occasion to be on opposite sides of the purchase of a large business; he was a tough and effective negotiator. If i needed a business attorney Robert would be among my first choices.
