Published: Monday, October 4, 2021

Sandler,  Travis  &  Rosenberg,  P.A.  is  pleased  to  announce  that  Jason  Kenner  joined  the  firm  on  Sept.  27,  2021,  to  head  its  litigation  practice.  Over  the  last  fourteen  years  Mr.  Kenner  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.”

Mr.  Kenner  holds  a  J.D.  from  St.  Johns  University  School  of  Law  (cum  laude)  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  +1 (212)  549-0137  or  via  email  at
