Kevin Kneupper

Partner

Kevin has been practicing law for more than 15 years, since 2005. He focuses on consumer protection cases, trying to stop businesses from taking advantage of people. That could be anything from false advertising to charging fees they shouldn’t to outright fraud.

After graduating from the University of Texas School of Law, he started out working for a judge in New Orleans, the Honorable Judge James L. Dennis on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. It was bad timing: Hurricane Katrina hit the city just a few weeks later. But he was able to work as a law clerk on some of the biggest death penalty cases in the country, including one that went all the way to the Supreme Court.

He moved back to Texas in 2007, becoming a principal in a plaintiff’s law firm that was voted one of the “most feared” in the entire country. He focused on high tech cases and patent lawsuits, and was part of the trial team for eight jury trials in multi-million dollar cases. One of them, Versata vs. SAP AG, ended up with a $391 million verdict for his client, Versata. He went toe to toe with some of the best lawyers in the world for some of the biggest companies in the world: Apple, Google, and Oracle, just to name a few.

In 2019, he decided to start a law firm with one of his friends from the Wake Forest college debate team, Cyclone Covey. They decided to focus on cases where they could help average people, instead of just helping one business sue another business. From a class action with tens of thousands of people to helping a single person, they work to find unfair business practices and to stop them.

Outside of the law, Kevin writes novels and screenplays. His books have had more than 100,000 readers, and he’s well known for fighting on behalf of romance novelists to stop the word “cocky” from being trademarked so everyone could use it in their book titles.
