I approached several attorneys with my complicated long story and every one took at least an hour to understand the case and suggested me useless strategies. I am very lucky to stumble upon Kurt. He is very smart as he understood the case in just 10 minutes and stopped me going into complicated and unnecessary details. His strategy and professional acumen forced the defendant to come to settlement quickly by giving me a second mortgage on his home.star only review

When I learned that a company where I was on the Board of Directors did not have D&O insurance (after being told they did) it was upon learning of a lawsuit from a former employee. The lawsuit named the members of the Board in addition to the Company and its owner specifically as having wrongfully terminated his employment and also purchased his ownership position in the company.
My search for a firm to defend me independently from the corporation which had mishandled both the D&O insurance and the original suit which we had lost led me to Kurt Kusiak. He was referenced as a Boston attorney who had not only handled cases such as this but had won all that I could find reference to.
Despite taking around 3 years to resolve Kurt and his able team, including Hether Cahill, were able to correct prior wrongdoings and win an appeal which completely resolved me from any damages. Since the entire board was named his work also helped the other board members. It was a complex case with records dating back over 10 years but nevertheless Kurt found a way to wade through the many papers and records to prove me clear of any wrongdoing.
I would strongly recommend Kurt Kusiak to defend anyone where an action has occurred against the board of directors and/or the individual board members. It was always good to get updates from Kurt because he gave simple English information and outlined the upside and downside clearly.
Kurt became my lawyer in April of 2009 and our case was settled in May of 2011.

Kurt is our primary counsel in the United States for litigation matters and disputes. He is a skilled trial attorney and a trusted advisor to the company on a variety of legal matters. As a multi-national corporation with over $1B in revenue, 10,000 employees and offices in more than 50 countries, we frequently face complex disputes and claims that have the potential to distract the company our from our business priorities. In addition to his legal acumen, Kurt understands our business as well as the bio/pharma industry in which we compete. It is this combination of trial skills and his business savvy that separates Kurt from other lawyers. He appreciates the importance of putting our company in the best position to resolve disputes and reduce the disruption to our business and employees. This quality work is performed at a cost that is reasonable and significantly less than the big law firms. I highly recommend Kurt and the team at Sally & Fitch.

I have worked with Kurt on several matter, including multi-million dollar litigation while we represented separate but allied parties in the litigation. Kurt's work, whether in court, deposition, brief writing or negotiation, is always first rate. He has an extremely broad skill set, and is an outstanding tactical strategist. I have also referred clients to Kurt in matters where I have conflicts, and they have been uniformly thrilled with his work.
