Our Firm


Edward Beane and Thomas Keane founded the firm more than 30 years ago. Since starting in May, 1980, we have grown from a four attorney practice to one of the largest law firms in Westchester County.

Keane & Beane was originally part of Keane & Butler, a firm founded in 1969 with offices in New York City, White Plains, and Rye (its founding members, Tom Keane and Tom Butler were both Rye residents). In 1980, the Westchester offices, headed by Tom Keane and Ed Beane, decided to go out on their own. Shortly thereafter, White Plains became the headquarters, although we kept a Rye office for many years. In 2008, we opened a Fishkill, NY office to better serve clients in the northern portion of the Hudson Valley.

Since the firm’s founding, we have adhered to a simple philosophy – to develop strong working relationships with clients while ensuring they receive “small firm,” personal attention at all times. These principles have allowed us to understand the objectives of our clients and provide well-managed, cost effective and timely service. We have also been strongly committed to service to our Community

Our professionals have provided tremendous continuity for our clients.  The average tenure of our Members is 18 years.
