Jason Kanterman is a litigation associate resident in Fried Frank's New York office.

Mr. Kanterman represents individuals and institutional clients in affirmative and defensive litigation across a diverse range of industries and disciplines, routinely counseling clients in matters involving sophisticated business disputes, securities litigation, class actions and multidistrict litigation, insurance-related disputes, transportation and logistics disputes, employment matters, and whistleblower and False Claims Act litigation. He also conducts investigations and counsels clients in pre-suit strategy and alternative dispute resolution.

Mr. Kanterman has tried several bench trials to verdict, has argued dispositive and non-dispositive motions in state and federal courts throughout the country, and has represented clients in successful appeals before state and federal appellate courts including the Supreme Court of the United States.

When not actively litigating, Mr. Kanterman serves as an adjunct professor of law at Rutgers Law School where he teaches litigation skills courses including deposition practice and trial advocacy. A frequent lecturer and writer, Mr. Kanterman regularly presents continuing education courses; authors law review articles, invited essays, and book chapters; and speaks with the media on the topics of federal civil procedure, litigation strategies, whistleblower litigation, evidentiary law, and insurance law.
