Attorney Jen Kreder got her early training as a Litigation Associate with Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, LLP, in New York, concentrating on Holocaust-era inter-governmental negotiation and property litigation issues, art disputes and class actions, as well as white collar cases concerning securities and insurance. She also was awarded for her work on behalf of Catholic nuns and others tortured and murdered during the Salvadoran civil war. Previously, Jen clerked for The Honorable Barefoot Sanders, United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. She is a graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center and the University of Florida.
For twenty years, Jen has appeared in cases about art that traded hands during both the Nazi era and the Russian Revolution on behalf of historians, the American Jewish Congress and the Commission for Art Recovery against the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Yale University and others. At stake were works by such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Egon Schiele, George Grosz and Paul Cézanne. Growing out of Jen’s interest in art recovery cases, her practice has grown to include the First Amendment’s intersection with art, the internet, copyright, trademarks, museums and non-profits. She also has served as an expert witness or consultant on many of these issues, as well as issues pertaining to property and insurance coverage.
Jen also researches and drafts federal trial, appeals and arbitration briefs in a wide variety of federal cases, including multi-district litigation and petitions for certiorari to the Supreme Court. She is admitted to practice in Florida, New York, the Supreme Court, Second Circuit, Southern District of New York, Eastern District of New York and Northern District of Texas.
