Jason Ederer focuses his practice on professional liability, intellectual property, and sports and entertainment law. He has state and federal appellate experience, and litigates matters involving a wide variety of issues, including complex commercial claims, professional malpractice (lawyers/auditors), breach of contract/fiduciary duty, broker’s errors and omissions, and directors and officers liability 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.  For his achievements, Jason was recognized as a New York Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2015.

Jason is a frequent author in the areas of copyright, trademark, and unfair competition; sports, entertainment, and media; and professional liability law. His nationally published work includes writing for DRI an examination of emerging trends in advertising injury/IP coverage litigation, co-authoring an analysis for the American Bar Association of the continuous representation doctrine and tolling of legal malpractice claims, as well as exploring for DRI the implications of high-profile copyright infringement litigations involving rapper Jay Z and Fox's hit television show Empire. He also wrote a feature post for DRI Today titled “Snyder’s Last Stand,” analyzing the Washington Redskins’ ongoing trademark litigations in the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board and federal appellate courts. While receiving his LL.M. in intellectual property law, Jason authored an article on the case GateHouse Media v. New York Times Company examining the practice of "deep-linking" taking place on local-news–aggregating websites on the internet, which was published in the United Kingdom’s Copyright World.
