Jay Kasner

Jay Kasner, Skadden’s securities litigation practice leader, represents a diverse group of U.S. and international public and private companies and their directors and officers in their most crucial litigation matters. Mr. Kasner has been ranked repeatedly in the top tier for nationwide securities litigation in Chambers USA, where he has been described as the “dean of the securities Bar” and is one of only three lawyers listed in as a “star individual” for New York securities litigation, in addition to receiving its Business Trial Lawyer Award for Excellence in 2018. Sources tell the publication, “He’s probably the best securities lawyer in the country.” He was named a 2018 Distinguished Leader by the New York Law Journal — which also recognized Skadden as its Litigation Department of the Year — and a 2018 Litigation Trailblazer by the National Law Journal. Under Mr. Kasner’s leadership, Skadden’s 80-attorney securities litigation practice was recognized nine consecutive times, including in the 2020 Fearsome Foursome — the four elite litigation practices — and named a “powerhouse” in securities and finance litigation by BTI Consulting.
