Biography

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 related to contractual interpretation and business torts and requiring persuasive written arguments to the tribunal deciding the case. 

He has considerable experience in the collection of evidence involved in corporate lawsuits, but his greatest contribution is the ability to analyze and distill a large volume of data, depositions, and witness interviews into persuasive written advocacy through clear, precise, and effective legal writing.

He also has an extensive background in corporate investigations, both governmental and internal.
