He represents businesses and individuals in court litigating summary dispossess matters in a commercial setting (representing landlords or tenants), commercial collection matters, construction liens, disputes in connection with the sale or purchase of commercial real estate, and other real estate related matters, as well as business disputes, contract enforcement actions, and replevins for commercial lenders. Some of the issues McKeown has dealt with in his commercial real estate litigation practice include non-payment of rent, abandonment of leased premises, eminent domain, mold contamination, site contamination, lease condemnation, and illegal use of premises by tenants. His experience involves all stages of litigation, including pretrial procedure, trials (jury and non-jury) and appellate practice in state and federal courts, including the United States Bankruptcy Court. He has argued civil appeals before the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
In addition to his real estate related litigation practice, McKeown has substantial experience in commercial and residential real estate transactions including the negotiation of contracts for the purchase and sale of real estate, lease negotiations, and land use and zoning applications.
