Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg is pleased to announce that Jason Kenner joined the firm on September 27, 2021, to head its litigation practice.
Over the last fourteen years Jason served in the Department of Justice as a Trial Attorney and then Senior Trial Counsel handling federal trial and appellate international trade litigation.
“Jason’s first-hand experience as a well-respected, seasoned litigator will allow the firm to build on our nearly half-century of successful international trade litigation,” said ST&R Operating Committee member Lenny Feldman.
“As federal agencies more aggressively enforce international trade laws, litigation has become an increasingly important and necessary tool in protecting our clients’ interests.”
At the Department of Justice, Jason served in the Civil Division, International Trade Field Office, and more recently on its Trade Fraud Task Force. As lead attorney in the trial and appeal of trade cases, he was responsible for formulating and executing litigation strategies, representing officials from, and decisions by, United States Customs and Border Protection, the Commerce Department, and other federal agencies.
He was responsible for all aspects of litigation in customs and trade-related matters, and for supervising the work of junior trial attorneys.
Jason holds a J.D. from St. Johns University School of Law and a B.A. in public justice from Oswego State University.
He has been admitted to the bar in New York state, the Court of International Trade, and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He can be contacted by phone at (212) 549-0137 or via email at [email protected].
