The firm was co-founded in 1969 by Richard Kitch and Richard F. Suhrheinrich (now a Senior Federal Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge), both experienced litigators, especially in malpractice and products liability cases. While many firms have grown primarily through mergers and acquisitions, the Kitch firm has experienced all of its growth to date through its focus on strong client partnerships, leadership in the practice of law, and successful business practices. The firm has grown from four attorneys in 1969 to 19 attorneys in 1980 to over 100 attorneys and six offices in the Great Lakes region in 2008.

Summer associate program

Few things are more important professionally to an aspiring lawyer than gaining practical knowledge of how law is, and should really be, practiced. At the Kitch firm, we strive to provide law graduates and students who work with the firm opportunities for real research, writing, and even client contact, not make-work assignments. We do not hide law grads and students or their work from clients, like many firms do.

We also expect our senior attorneys to provide guidance and practical information to the aspiring attorney, which allows him or her to understand what various areas of our practice involve and what it will take to be successful as an attorney. While clerkship does not guarantee an offer as an associate in the firm, many of our attorneys were in fact recruited from firm clerkships.
