The primary tool for fitting models to data is FindFit which handles both linear and non-linear models. FindFit wants to see the data list in the form of an nXm matrix. So, I assume what you need to do is transform the data structure into something FindFit accepts, i.e.,

In[17]:=
data = {{k1,{{x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, {x3, y3}}}, 
       {k2, {{x1, y1}, {x2, y2}, {x3, y3}}}}; 

In[18]:=
Join @@ Transpose /@ 
   (Join[{Table[First[#1], {Length[Last[#1]]}]}, 
         Transpose[Last[#1]]]&)/@ data
Out[18]=
{{k1, x1, y1}, {k1, x2, y2}, 
  {k1, x3, y3}, {k2, x1, y1}, 
  {k2, x2, y2}, {k2, x3, y3}}
