Biography

Kevin Burke is a Buffalo business attorney focused on the litigation of contract disputes, labor and employment issues, intellectual property protection, and trade secret cases. Kevin has represented both individuals and businesses since he moved home from Washington, D.C. in 1999, where he graduated with honors from Georgetown University and George Washington University Law School.

Kevin has tried dozens of major commercial and employment cases to verdict. He regularly handles appeals before the Appellate Division, State of New York and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. He frequently writes and lectures on employee mobility issues, including the evolving area of noncompete agreements. Kevin also counsels clients on pre-litigation matters ranging from business formation and the hiring of employees to shareholder disputes, business dissolution, and employment termination. Kevin’s practice has expanded in recent years to include data breach incident response counseling and cyber-security legal analysis for New York companies with employees in multiple jurisdictions.

Kevin has been recognized as Who’s Who in the Law and Legal Elite by The Buffalo Law Journal and Buffalo Business First. He is regularly listed among Upstate New York’s Super Lawyers in the category of Commercial Litigation.

Kevin actively serves his community. He frequently coaches high school students in the Bar Association of Erie County’s high school mock trial tournament, is a founding member of the Rotary Club of BNMC, conducts student applicant interviews for Georgetown University, and recently completed a term on the Nichols School Alumni Board. He is an active member of the Checkers A.C. running club, the Buffalo Ski Center, Delaware Soccer Club, Buffalo Turners Gymnastics, and the Buffalo Canoe Club.

Kevin, his wife, and their children are proud residents of the resurging West Side of Buffalo, New York.
