Jay B. Kasner

Jay B. Kasner leads Skadden’s national securities litigation practice, which has been recognized for the fifth consecutive time as a member of the “Fearsome Foursome” — the four elite law firm litigation practices — and named as one of only three “powerhouses” for Securities and Finance Litigation in a survey of corporate counsel conducted by BTI Consulting and published in 2014. Mr. Kasner is widely recognized as one of the country’s top litigators handling securities, corporate and takeover litigation, and general commercial matters. Ranked in the top tier for nationwide securities litigation and one of only two lawyers listed as a “star individual” for New York securities litigation in Chambers USA, he represents both financial institutions and a diverse group of public companies and their directors and officers in their most crucial securities matters. He also was profiled in an article in The American Lawyer, which named the firm as a finalist for “Litigation Department of the Year” (January 2014).
