April 16, 2024, New York, NY – Kudman Trachten Aloe Posner LLP is pleased to announce the addition of former Assistant U.S. Attorney and seasoned litigator Mitchell Epner in its New York office. Mitchell joins KTAP as a senior counsel.

Mitchell has experience in virtually all forms of complex litigation, including employment, entertainment, securities, patent and other intellectual property and trusts and estates.  His criminal expertise includes government enforcement, compliance, and federal and state white collar litigation.

Some of Mitchell’s most notable matters include a victory at the Supreme Court in KSR International Co. v. Teleflex, Inc., considered one of the most important patent decisions of the last 30 years; a series of wins for the controlling shareholders of Hudson News in $1 billion litigation against one of the world’s 20 wealthiest individuals; representation of the former Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer of Silicon Valley Bank; and representation of leading pharmaceutical companies in patent litigations regarding products with over $1 billion per year in sales.

“With his well-deserved reputation in high stakes litigation matters, Mitchell will be a fantastic addition to our expanding litigation practice and a big asset to our clients,” said Paul Aloe, chair of KTAP’s litigation department. “The firm is in growth mode, with the recent opening of a Florida location and renowned white-collar criminal defense lawyer Tama Beth Kudman joining the team in Florida and New York.”

Mitchell Epner added, “I have known and worked with many of the lawyers at KTAP for years. I am excited to bring my deep breadth of experience and look forward to collaborating and expanding their top, client-service focused litigation practice.”
