About Kutak Rock LLP

Kutak Rock LLP is a national law firm of more than 450 lawyers with offices from coast to coast. Our firm serves local, regional and national clients in a practice that spans a wide range of disciplines. We encourage our attorneys to take advantage of the national resources and broad range of expertise the firm offers in order to provide the best legal services possible to our clients. 

Our firm's primary practice concentrations are business and corporate law, public finance, litigation and real estate law, with numerous areas of specialization. Kutak Rock attorneys work together in well-integrated, national practice groups to maintain and enhance their technical expertise and to reinforce and support one another in achieving client objectives. 

We have represented hundreds of state and local governmental units, a substantial number of Fortune 500 corporations, every major investment banking firm in the United States, major European, Asian and domestic money-center banks, insurance companies, national real estate investors and developers, major national franchising enterprises and numerous other financial institutions and businesses. 
We have earned a national reputation for finding creative solutions to complex legal issues and for providing excellent legal services in a practical, cost-conscious manner. We maintain that reputation by actively communicating with our clients at the initial stages of each engagement to gain a complete and clear understanding of our clients' desired objectives. 


Kutak Rock’s national litigation practice consists of more than 120 attorneys working in 16 offices from across the country. Our clients benefit from this national network because every litigator can draw upon the depth of knowledge and experience of litigators in other offices to ensure best results. Our attorneys undertake a wide variety of litigation matters, and we have significant experience in bankruptcy, business and commercial litigation, construction, employment and labor, energy and environmental, financial services and securities, governmental investigations, health care, insurance, intellectual property, privacy, product liability and mass torts, real estate and risk management. Throughout Kutak Rock’s national network of offices, our trial and appellate attorneys participate in specialized practice groups to ensure that we comprehensively and successfully secure our clients’ objectives. 
Over the last few decades, Kutak Rock has secured several hundred if not thousands of successful verdicts and judgments for firm clients. We measure our success by verdicts or awards as well as our clients’ satisfaction in knowing we resolve business problems in the most efficient manner possible. We understand our clients are not in business to litigate. However, we also understand our clients know business disputes and resulting litigation are a cost of doing business. We believe effective advocacy representing our clients’ interests, paired with cost containment practices, enable our clients to meet their business objectives in a cost-effective manner. Through settlement or trial, we are results-driven because we understand the importance of providing clients with a return on their investment.
