Eitan Kagedan counsels individual and corporate clients on legal issues involving civil rights, corporate liability, intellectual property rights and contractual obligations.
His multifaceted practice involves advising on—and litigating—business disputes and business divorces. Eitan works with clients at every stage of a potential dispute, from early case assessment through resolution. This work includes determining the best paths to resolution, which may be arbitration/mediation or negotiations before parties go to trial. He frequently represents a multinational telecommunications company, defending the company in personal injury claims and advising on complex questions of contractual indemnification and multiparty liability. Eitan also analyzes complex coverage disputes and represents major and specialty insurance carriers in high-stakes disputes with insureds and other insurers.
Laws involving public interest and institutions are frequently at the heart of local and state disputes; as part of the firm’s election law team, Eitan represents state agencies in court to protect election integrity and ensure free, fair and accessible elections, and has been involved in high-profile litigation concerning the security of the electronic voting systems used in the Commonwealth. Education is another arena where Eitan is active, as he advises students and families about their educational rights and also supports a large school district in conducting third-party investigations into alleged student and staff misconduct.
An active community member, Eitan has volunteered as an advisor to the board of the Professional Theater and Youth Dance Academy and served as an observer for the board of HIAS PA, an organization supporting immigrants of all backgrounds through immigration legal services and social services.
Before law school, Eitan served as a corps member for Avodah (an AmeriCorps program), working as a legal advocate with the Urban Justice Center’s Mental Health Project. While in undergrad, his leadership of an international philanthropy and service program garnered a Rutgers University campus award for outstanding community service outreach.
During law school, he served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Diane J. Larsen of the Circuit Court of Cook County Illinois, Chancery Division. Prior to joining the firm, he was an associate with Dentons US, LLP in Chicago.
