Our Commitment to Diversity
Jennifer Janeira Nagle

Jen Nagle is a commercial litigator with a demonstrated focus on working with clients to build dispute resolution strategies that balance advocacy and pragmatism. Whether addressing contractual disputes, allegations concerning deceptive acts and practices, disputes arising from employment or quasi-employment relationships, violations of restrictive covenants, misappropriation of trade secrets, or intellectual property violations, among many other things, Jen works closely with her clients to understand their business and legal goals and to develop and execute a litigation strategy that balances those interests. 

Jen brings this experience and focus to commercial disputes of all kinds, but has deep knowledge in the area of class action defense in particular, having defended businesses across industries against consumer protection class actions filed in state and federal courts around the country. Stemming from that extensive experience, Jen has most recently designed a portfolio runbook and built a team that currently handles all class action demands and litigation concerning deceptive or misleading marketing of consumer products for one of the world's largest retailers. 

Jen has assisted with designing, implementing, refining, and managing various other types of litigation portfolios as well. She has developed and implemented a toolkit for helping clients anticipate and manage litigation trends, prepare strategies for trending or volume litigation, and build processes and teams to both maximize successful resolution of portfolio matters and minimize disruption to clients' in-house attorneys and internal business operations. Jen has successfully revamped litigation portfolios involving class actions, employee disputes, and personal injury complaints, among others underway.

Jen also regularly advises clients outside of litigation in the area of restrictive covenants, including as to compliance with state laws, assessment of hiring and separation risks, and strategic analysis related to enforcement of restrictive covenants.

Jennifer joined K&L Gates in September of 2007.
