Practice/Industry Group Overview
Kutak Rock trial attorneys aggressively enforce rights and defend claims for a variety of businesses and governmental entities. From private companies and Fortune 50 companies to states, counties, cities and agencies, Kutak Rock’s seasoned litigators have tried lawsuits involving complex contract issues, trade secrets, restrictive covenants, the False Claims Act, breaches of fiduciary duties and a spectrum of business torts. Our attorneys employ early assessment strategies to determine the best approach to meet our clients’ goals. Efficiency and creativity are the hallmarks of our commercial litigation practice, which is why many businesses in a variety of industries and governmental entities seek out our litigators when an issue arises. Kutak Rock’s litigators collaboratively determine strategy, and strive to understand our clients’ business goals in order to reach the best resolution.
Because amicable resolutions are not always possible, our attorneys work from the beginning of each case to enhance trial outcomes. As a result, clients trust our commercial litigators to protect their interests and achieve their desired results.
Our litigation attorneys understand class actions, complex multiple-plaintiff cases and class certification issues, and we work closely with all of our clients to develop and implement long-term strategies to achieve their ultimate business goals. We have extensive experience successfully taking these cases to verdict, and we have also creatively explored and effectuated highly favorable and early settlements, including very large class action matters on behalf of Fortune 50 companies. For class action matters we create interoffice teams composed of both litigators and subject matter to experts to effectively use discovery, motion practice and other strategies to achieve successful resolution through mediation or defense at trial.
Kutak Rock’s litigators have extensive experience in class action suits for clients in a variety of industries including medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, retail pharmacy chains, health insurers, health care systems, financial institutions, telecommunications companies, manufacturers and other public entities. Those class and collective actions have asserted ERISA claims, wage and hour disputes, insurance disputes, claims under the RICO statute, the Packers and Stockyards Act, federal securities laws, consumer protection statutes and many other state and federal statutes.
