Since its inception in 1952, McAfee & Taft has taken a leadership role in providing clients with creative and innovative strategies for meeting their business and legal needs. In the early 1950’s, founder Kenneth E. McAfee was instrumental in registering the nation’s first drilling fund with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A few years later, co-founder Richard G. Taft filed the first registration statement of an international drilling fund.
The tradition of providing innovative and aggressive legal representation continues to this day. For more than 60 years, clients have counted on McAfee & Taft’s multi-disciplinary approach to problem-solving, along with the depth and talent of its dedicated attorneys and support staff, to create comprehensive, customized legal solutions.
