Jason T. Confair, Esq., has litigated before numerous Federal District Courts, every Pennsylvania appellate court, common pleas courts throughout the Commonwealth, federal, state, and local agencies, and in numerous arbitration forums. During the course of his practice, Jason has had the privilege and responsibility of representing clients ranging from international and national corporations to statewide organizations, to engineers, doctors, professors, and other lawyers, to public figures.
Jason’s background and experience are unique. Raised by a family of business executives, Jason spent a significant portion of his career acting as outside general counsel to large corporations, handling complex financing transactions with values of up to $50 million, handling national and international distribution arrangements, and representing buyers in multi-million-dollar acquisitions in a wide range of industries. Jason’s track record with public sector business matters is just as expansive. In the public sector arena, among other things, Jason has served as an adviser to the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials and has handled everything from public entity mergers to large real estate acquisitions.
The depth, sophistication, and breadth of Jason’s background and experience not only allow him to identify the leverage points in a business or commercial dispute very quickly but also be able to distill the issues and key points into a narrative that resonates deeply and persuasively with courts and adversaries. That skill set has served Jason well in litigation.
Acting as plaintiffs’ counsel, Jason has recovered millions of dollars for businesses, school districts, and municipalities. Acting as defense counsel, Jason has defeated everything from putative nationwide class actions to professional malpractice claims to regulatory complaints. Many of the cases Jason has handled have received significant publicity.
Prior to entering private practice, Jason served as a law clerk to Chief Justice Ralph J. Cappy of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania and to Senior Judge Patrick R. Tamilia of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.
Four years after entering private practice, Jason was named equity partner at Kegel Kelin Litts & Lord LLP. At age 37, Jason was appointed managing partner of the firm, an appointment which culminated in Jason coordinating the merger of the firm into Saxton & Stump effective January 1, 2023.
