Cecil Kuhne is a litigator in the Dallas office, where he has been a member of the firm since 1993.
His primary practice area is the analysis, advocacy, and resolution of a wide range of complex and contentious commercial disputes, particularly those concerning contractual interpretation and requiring written arguments to the tribunal deciding the case.
He also has considerable experience in corporate investigations, both internal and regulatory, regarding alleged violations of the False Claims Act and other statutes.
His background relating to the discovery of electronic evidence provides him with an appreciation for its many challenges, but his greatest contribution is the ability to make complex matters understandable and to analyze and distill a large amount of data, depositions, and witness interviews into persuasive written advocacy.
