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.

For example, Mr. Kanterman recently filed amicus briefs in the Sixth and Eleventh Circuits on behalf of national medical associations in cases of great constitutional importance.
