Jason L. Ederer


Jason Ederer focuses his practice on the defense of complex professional liability, commercial, insurance and intellectual property claims.

Mr. Ederer litigates matters in both state and federal court involving a wide variety of insurance-related matters, including cases involving claims for professional malpractice (lawyers/accountants/auditors), breach of contract/fiduciary duty, agents and broker’s errors and omissions, directors and officers liability, declaratory judgment and coverage issues.

He also handles intellectual property-related disputes involving copyright, trademark and trade dress infringement, unfair competition and counterfeiting issues; media, sports and entertainment matters; and First Amendment, Fourteenth Amendment and RICO matters.

Jason is also frequently published in the areas of professional liability, insurance, copyright, trademark, and sports, entertainment and media law.  His published work includes articles on a range of current topics, from the legal and ethical implications of attorney blogging and the continuous representation doctrine’s effect on legal malpractice claims, to analysis of high-profile copyright and trademark matters and the potential coverage of intellectual property claims under “advertising injury” clauses in liability insurance policies.

Jason received his B.A. in American Culture from the University of Michigan. He received his J.D. from Syracuse University College of Law, and his LL.M. with a concentration in intellectual property law from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. He is admitted to practice in New York state, the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and has state and federal appellate experience.

Jason joined Mound Cotton in May of 2017, after seven years at two prominent Manhattan firms specializing in insurance-related matters.
