Edward T. Kang

Managing Member

Edward T. Kang is the managing member of Kang Haggerty LLC, and devotes his practice to business litigation and other litigation involving business entities. Rated AV Preeminent on Martindale-Hubbell, Edward is recognized as providing exceptional legal counsel and support to his clients. Unlike many litigation attorneys who never, or rarely, try a case in court, Edward regularly tries cases, including jury trials.

As part of his business litigation practice, Edward carries expertise in a variety of areas, including contract disputes, business torts (such as fraud, tortious interference, and unfair competition), civil RICO, and breach of fiduciary duty. In particular, Edward focuses on “business divorce,” such as shareholder and partnership break-ups. He has represented both majority and minority interest holders in such disputes, and believes in resolving these disputes as quickly as possible through negotiation and resolution. When litigation proves necessary, however, Edward is prepared to represent his clients through trial and on appeal if needed.

In addition to business litigation practice, Edward is experienced in other types of litigation relating to business entities, including internal investigation, trade secret, antitrust, and securities fraud. 

Edward is a certified Panel Member of the American Arbitration Association for Commercial Litigation.
