Bruce E. Loren

Partner

Bruce attended public school in Brooklyn, New York. From an early age, he worked in the family restaurant business, then continued with part-time employment throughout college and law school. Bruce attributes these experiences to creating the business and practical skills that benefit his clients every day. “Getting your hands dirty,” straight-forward talk, responsiveness, efficiency, and deep appreciation for clients are all ingrained traits in Bruce.

By the time Bruce graduated law school, he had argued in federal appeals courts, and was featured in The New York Law Journal and The New York Times for his involvement in a landmark public education case for handicapped students. After law school, Bruce joined an international law firm based in New York City, where he began training in large and complex corporate and business litigation.

After getting married in law school, and then starting a family, Bruce relocated to Palm Beach County where he began to develop his expertise in construction law, representing national and regional developers and contractors at a large Florida-based law firm. The traits that Bruce developed in his youth seemed to be wholly compatible with representing all parties in the construction industry.

After becoming partner, Bruce chose to start his own firm in 1998. Slowly, the solo firm added great attorneys and paralegals–the start of an incredible team. Responsiveness and client involvement has separated Loren & Kean Law from many other firms. “Think like a business person” is a mindset that Bruce has ingrained in every employee. It is the mindset that enables Loren & Kean Law to successfully fight some of the largest law firms in the world, while always giving practical and straight-forward advice to their clients.
