Jed is a seasoned lawyer and oral advocate who has successfully litigated contentious matters at all levels of the legal system, including the trial courts, courts of appeal, and U.S. Supreme Court. Whether briefing critical matters, developing discovery, trying a case, or arguing before an appellate tribunal, he brings a relentless focus on clarity and efficiency to obtain the best results for his clients.
Prior to joining Kaplan & Grady, Jed was counsel at Mayer Brown LLP, where he handled appeals and complex motions, particularly in the fields of ERISA and antitrust. In addition, he gained substantial experience in commercial litigation, class actions, professional malpractice, arbitration, and a range of other matters.
Jed has devoted significant time to public interest cases, including litigating a novel constitutional challenge to laws that treat some voters worse than others on account of age. He gives the same dedication to these public interest matters as he does to his commercial clients.
