After over 20 years of successfully prosecuting and defending a broad range of complex civil litigation cases, helping clients solve legal problems remains my passion.

Kurt concentrates his practice representing businesses, executives, and professionals in complex civil litigation in administrative forums and state and federal trial courts, including bankruptcy court and the North Carolina Business Court. He has handled a wide variety of business disputes including matters involving insurance coverage, breach of contract, employment, breach of fiduciary duty, unfair and deceptive trade practices, usurpation of corporate opportunities, trade secrets, discrimination and non-compete agreements. Kurt also represents businesses in internal investigations and compliance, including matters arising under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, complex occupational disease, and product liability matters. In addition, he has extensive experience litigating multi-party cases, including multi-district litigation, and managing and coordinating e-discovery, and he has represented clients in appeals before the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Recent significant engagements include litigation of fraud, fiduciary duty and other claims before the North Carolina Business Court, and litigation of a bankruptcy trustee’s claims against a corporate trustee and surety for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, anti-trust, and other claims.

Kurt decided to become a lawyer when he was very young. His dad, Ron Seeber, served as the City Attorney of Winston-Salem for 37 years and was a daily example of the positive effect of lawyers in their communities. Talking with his dad about his work over dinner and seeing firsthand the satisfaction that comes from helping others through the law inspired Kurt to pursue a career as a litigator. He has been living the dream ever since!
