Kurt M. Denk maintains a diverse practice focusing on general civil and complex commercial litigation. He has assisted in representing clients in a variety of advertising, antitrust, bankruptcy, contract and real estate matters, including in litigation, arbitration, investigation and proceedings before the National Advertising Division and the National Advertising Review Board. Most recently he was part of Kramer Levin teams representing major consumer goods companies in Lanham Act false advertising litigation, and part of a two-attorney team that concluded a major financial institution’s long-standing contract dispute with a former high-level employee, first in federal court and then in an arbitration proceeding.

Mr. Denk dedicates significant time to pro bono work. Through Kramer Levin’s pro bono program, he has represented, or assisted in representing, several asylum applicants, a class of public assistance and food stamp recipients in a suit against New York state and city agencies, and a nonprofit revising its bylaws pursuant to New York’s Non-Profit Revitalization Act of 2013. Mr. Denk also co-authored various amici curiae briefs supporting marriage equality in cases before a number of the United States Courts of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States, including Obergefell and related cases, in which the Court ruled in favor of civil marriage equality.

As an elected member of Kramer Levin’s Associates Committee, Mr. Denk represents the firm’s associates in supporting firm goals such as business and professional development, mentoring, and recruitment and retention.
