For nearly two decades, John Ebken has represented divergent businesses in a wide variety of commercial and civil litigation matters, focusing on disputes arising out of business agreements, real estate transactions, intellectual property rights and product liability. Beginning in 2010, John was nominated by his peers and named one of Pennsylvania’s “Rising Stars” by Philadelphia Magazine in the area of business litigation, an honor bestowed upon less than 2.5 percent of Pennsylvania’s lawyers. More recently, John’s peers identified him as one of the Best Lawyers in America for Commercial Litigation matters.

John has represented his clients in cases filed throughout the state and federal courts situated in Pennsylvania and has appeared on their behalf before courts and quasi-judicial tribunals located in thirty-six other states around the country. He also regularly drafts and negotiates business agreements, during which he draws upon insight gained through litigating such agreements.

John has also served as outside general counsel to a multi-national tableware manufacturer and distributor for many years.
