My experience as a business owner makes me uniquely suited to approach legal representation from the business owner’s perspective.

Professionally, I serve as the lead attorney for a wide variety clients.  Although I supervise my clients’ litigation matters, my practice primarily focuses on real estate and corporate transactional law as well as estate planning.  I currently represent and manage a book of business which includes a large variety of real estate, corporate, and litigation clients and their cases.  Additionally, I service clients in need of contract law matters as well as estate planning and tax law issues.  I have a diverse and profound level of experience, including, but not limited to, structuring estates and businesses, forming both for profit and non-profit business entities, preparing estate plans, administering estates, obtaining conservatorships and guardianships, protecting intellectual property rights, and litigating disputes that cannot be solved between the parties themselves.

Previoulsy, I was a partner in the Business Services group and Best Best and Krieger LLP. Before that, I founded and managed my own law firm, Kehr Law, for 12 years before joining BB&K. My experience as a business owner makes me uniquely suited to approach legal representation from the business owner’s perspective.

I provide corporate general counsel, technology, real estate, as well as trust, estate and succession planning legal services. I represent entrepreneurs, privately owned businesses and high-net-worth individuals. I provide legal services for a variety of individuals, entrepreneurs, investors and businesses, including start-ups and mature companies, across a broad range of industries, such as technology, software, Internet, gaming, insurance, manufacturing, distribution, real estate and professional services. He handles a variety of complex business, real estate, cyberspace and estate matters, both foreign and domestic.

My practice entails corporate transactions and organizations including:
◦mergers and acquisitions
◦restructuring
◦shareholder agreements
◦intellectual property prosecution, protection and licensing transactions
◦governance
◦real estate and real estate finance
◦complex contracts
◦intellectual property law including trademark and copyright
◦trusts, estates and succession planning, as well as asset protection

I organize and represent domestic, as well as international, businesses, trusts and estates. He represents his clients in commercial contract negotiations, asset protection, wealth preservation, regulatory compliance on a state and federal level as well as corporate and employment matters.

At age 8, I started his first business, “Dan’s Bird Farm,” where I bred and supplied exotic birds to the four local pet stores in Huntington Beach. I enjoy spending time with my two boys, snorkeling, golfing, starting businesses, giving back to the community, feeding the homeless, traveling, watching sports and eating sushi.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Asset Manager at The Greenwald Company
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Best Best & Krieger LLP. More specifically with Dan Kehr who was instrumental in assisting us in drafting a purchase and sale agreement (PSA) for an important project of ours. Dan was extremely proactive and professional in his assessment of what we were needing accomplished, provided expert recommendations on key issues and verbiage within the PSA, his transparency and honesty throughout the whole process was exceptional, as well as, his acute attention to detail and quality of work provided. Dan went above and beyond the normal call of duty to help us with this massive undertaking which we are extremely thankful for. We look forward to using Dan and Best Best & Krieger LLP again in the future.

you want him as an advocate not an adversary
When you need a law firm that will fight for your interest; understand your goals and be on your side...... there is no finer firm that Kehr Law. You will know that they are working on your behalf and will seek the right outcome; one that is fair & just. You can also count on Kehr law for corporate filings, estate planning and more. Their annual maintenance & representation program is a value and should be considered. This is my personal experience for the last 5+ years.

Dan has helped me tremendously getting my LLC up and running. I can always go to him with any business question I need and he will have and answer. He's very easy to talk to. Not only does he have a great legal team, he also has other people that can assist you with other aspects of your business such as accounting and bookkeeping.

Better than a Lawyer, has also become a friend...
Been working with Dan for a few years now -- to my complete satisfaction. He has been conscientious, courteous, and appropriately helpful in every occasion where I have asked for assistance. He has gone out of his way to make things work more easily for me -- flexible in regards to details that make a difference in my life -- where we meet, when, how conversations work, etc. He listens to what I need and finds a way to make it work every time. I have come to count on and trust his and his teams advice and often look forward to working with them. Without a doubt, he is among the most solid and dependable people I have ever known, which as a small to mid size business owner, I have come to recognize as priceless. Highly recommended.

Collaborative Partner
As an investment advisor, Dan is exactly what you look for when assembling a team to serve clients. I referred a client with several specific needs to Dan. Not only did dad meet those needs but he made several other estate recommendations that will ultimately save my client a significant amount of money. Dan has never met my clients, or me, face to face. Yet our virtual relationship thus far has not at all been a detractor to establishing trust and being exceptionally responsive. My client had several time sensitive needs come up and was able to reach Dan after hours and provide them with needed and time sensitive information. I would recommend Dan in a heartbeat.
