He has conducted internal investigations and represented clients responding to government probes. Trials include: representing a plaintiff in a four-week bench trial in federal court in New York concerning a fraudulent scheme to finance the importation of coffee beans, which resulted in a $90 million judgment; a five-week jury trial in federal court in New Jersey concerning an alleged scheme to manipulate world-wide commodity prices; and a four-month bench trial in federal court in Louisiana concerning the finances of a bankrupt oil and gas company. He has also served as an expert witness in connection with legal malpractice litigation. Among the prominent cases Mr. Keyko has handled was the representation of the primary claimant to a $1.5 billion estate in lawsuits filed in several jurisdictions.

He has lectured and written widely on securities, antitrust, legal ethics and general litigation topics, and chairs PLI's programs on federal pretrial practice and ethics for corporate lawyers. He is a former columnist for the New York Law Journal and has written several dozen articles on litigation and ethics issues for such publications as the National Law Journal, and Metropolitan Corporate Counsel, on whose advisory board Mr. Keyko served.

Mr. Keyko has undertaken a variety of pro bono projects, including representing for over 20 years a death row inmate in Alabama asserting that the inmate is innocent of the crime for which he was convicted, serving as Chair of the Board of MFY Legal Services, Inc., and serving two terms as a member of the Departmental Disciplinary Committee of the First Department.
