Biography

Kirk C. Jenkins chairs Sedgwick’s Appellate Task Force.  He has served as appellate counsel in approximately 200 appeals and petitions for interlocutory review in state and federal courts across the country.  And yet, he understands that sometimes, the most successful appeals are the ones that don’t have to happen – whether because the plaintiff concludes that an appeal from a defense verdict is unlikely to succeed, or because post-trial motions have reduced an adverse verdict to the point where an acceptable resolution is possible.
