At Blank Rome, Mr. Kistler devotes his practice to representing clients in high-stakes corporate and commercial litigation. He is a member of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group and Appellate Litigation Industry Group, co-chairman of the Commercial Litigation Practice Group’s Associate Development/Education Committee and a member of the group’s Pro Bono Committee, as well as the Princeton Office Pro Bono Committee.
